Painting on silk has been a specialty of mine for nearly 30 years. Beside being a member of SPIN (Silk Painters International) & SDA (Surface Design Association) my hand painted fashion scarves and accessories have graced some of the nations finest department and specialty stores. Works on silk, including framed paintings, are constantly being created by commission and also distributed to galleries and shops.The technique I employ for my work is know in French silk painting circles as "gutta serti". It is a comprehensive procedure that can yield spectacular colors and results. It all starts with a drawing/design that is traced onto silk which has been stretched taut on a frame. Gutta…a latex concoction, is used as a resist agent to outline the design and control/contain the spread of dyes. Many special effects can be achieved and the process is not unlike water color painting. After finalizing the painting it is steamed for several hours to permanently set the colors. The finished painted silk can then be fashioned into wall hangings, scarves, pillows, garments etc. No other medium can achieve the same shimmer/brilliance of color and diversity of effects that Silk Painting offers.For my work I use some of the finest silks in the world along with superior French dyes and a unique gutta imported from New Zealand. The majority is one-of-a-kind paintings, scarves etc. with very limited editions coming in as a second. Lately I have also been offering digital Giclee prints of some of my work. These are reproduced on actual silk and are available both framed and unframed
