    Artist Statement

    Silk painting came into my life when I was on a deep personal journey. It enabled me to open more fully, show up more publicly with strength in my vulnerability. For me, art is grounding, a temporary escape, a recharging and a voice for expressing and celebrating the beauty of life and Spirit’s creation. In each piece I try to convey emotions that balance my work and family life, and expressing peace, joy, grace, and the gift and tranquility of life and nature.


    I love working on silk because it continues to challenge me and enables me to bring shimmer, color and an in-depth view of the world around us. I hope you can immerse yourself in the joy and beauty of my work.

  • My Artistic Process

    Add subtitle


    Select & Draw Image

    I look for interesting picture with movement, character and contrast. I look for images that are available for commercial use or my own or friends photos. I like challenging designs expand my creativity.


    Apply Fabric Dye & Blend

    I blend colors of fabric dye and begin applying dye from light to dark on dry or wet silk depending on how I want the colors to interact.


    Steam to Set Colors

    Each piece must be placed between newspaper print and steamed for 3 hours to set the color. Then it is washed and rinsed to eliminate any excess dye, so it doesn't run, bleed or rub off.


    Mount on Canvas

    The finished work must be trimmed to fit a the selected canvas and then ironed so it lays flat. Then using a UV protection varnish, it is adhered to the canvas.
