Making a chuppah is a meditation on love. This brilliant Sunburst Dahlia Chuppah is hand painted with dye on silk crepe de chine. Oranges, scarlet, and soft gold petals in graceful brushstrokes against a deep aquamarine background resemble a sunburst in the center of this chuppah. A lovely centerpiece for a wedding. The valances are aquamarine silk georgette and have long ties to wrap around the poles or hang free. Machine sewn and hemmed.

Dimensions: 52”x53.5” + 7.5” valances which hang down 45”-56.5” from the corner - 2 per corner + a button hole on each corner

Most of the work I create is commissioned. PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR COMMISSIONED CHUPPAH. I enjoy working with clients to create your dream for your wedding.

Painting on fabric with dyes combines my love for fiber arts and color. Since 1976 I have been creating one-of-a-kind chuppah (wedding canopy), caftans and clothing, scarves, fabric, and banners. My style of hand painting on silk is similar to watercolors. I allow the colors to separate and interact with one another emphasizing brush strokes and creating a vibrant effect. The layering of color adds depth to my designs.

After all these years, I still find it mesmerizing to paint dye on fabric
