I was working 12 hour days in the corporate fashion industry. Every creative thought or idea was harnessed and poured into the company's product. For over 14 years I did this... contributing to someone else's dream and vision, because that was my job.

Painting on silk allows me to express myself like no other medium, and it is an intimate end product because once it's finished, it will be worn around your neck, not hanging on a wall. It will become a conversation piece, an elegant one of a kind accessory that brings out your eyes and elevates your outfit immediately. Knowing that my artwork will spark conversation and make help make someone feel glamorous and beautiful makes me so happy!

I find inspiration wherever I go and only wish there were more hours in the day so I could paint all my ideas! Silk painting is a labor of love, but I truly do LOVE every minute of it! To read more about my process, visit this blog posting: http://musesilkpainting.blogspot.com/2009/09/labor-of-love-silk-painting-process.html It is my hope that my delight and enthusiasm will come through in each piece and that they will end up in the home of someone who truly appreciates the value of original art and timeless style.

"Behind the Name" of Muse Silk Paintings

Definition of a Muse: The source of an artist’s inspiration.

As each Muse Silk Paintings scarf is a unique, hand painted artwork you can wear, it is meant to spark your imagination! Where will you wear it? What colors will you style it with? How will you fold it and swirl it around? It is my hope you will search and find your inner “fashion” Muse and have fun creating your own, special look. Because after all, you are a beautiful masterpiece yourself, so take a moment to dress it up and really shine!
