About

Hi, I am a Graphic Designer who loves to silk paint! I live in the South Island of New Zealand and have been inspired by the awesome mountains, lakes and bird life. Silk painting is a wonderful relaxing way to paint and create, the colours that can be achieved are intense and look fantastic. I draw my picture freehand onto white silk to start, then use an outline gutta resist to go over my pencil lines, this dries as a fence line in which to fill in the bright inks. Using water and salt on the wet ink, different patterns are achieved. Each picture is unique and the inks will run in different ways every time. I would love you to look at my shop and feel free to contact me.
