Silk PaintingI am a silk painter in Portland, Oregon, creating silk art and fashion - necklaces, scarves, shawls, wall art and other creations.

All of my work is individually hand painted on fine 100% silk, so each piece is one of a kind. I use a resist to draw in the lines, and apply all the color using silk dyes and a brush. Some pieces are adorned with semi-precious gem stones or delicate chain fringe. The colors are steam-set, so they are colorfast and hand-washable.

I love rich colors and flowing organic shapes. Much inspiration comes from the forests of the northwest. When not at the Portland Saturday Market, or other art shows I work from my studio in Northwest Portland.

I am happy to do custom or wholesale work. Please contact me to talk about it.
