Luxurious, hand-dyed, one-of-a-kind silk scarves

After careers in music, journalism and publishing I decided to devote myself full time to my love of art. I studied drawing and watercolor at the Cleveland Museum of Art, then discovered my favorite medium when I tried silk painting. It has many similarities to watercolor, particularly in the way colors blend.

Silk takes color like no other medium, and that's one of the things I love about it. I start with a piece of white silk and build my designs, layer upon layer, using French silk dyes that I apply with brushes. I often add detail with fabric paints or markers. The silk then needs to be streamed to set the color, after which I wash it to remove any excess dye.

Each piece is one-of-a-kind; there is no way to duplicate the designs or colors exactly.

I find the process very meditative, which, for me, is one of its most rewarding aspects.
