Announcement    All of my unique textile creations are made from my original hand painted silk and cotton fabrics from my 35 years designing the Silkscapes and LRW Designs clothing collections. I recycle them along with other unusual fabrics and fiber techniques. I have been creating art to wear since 1978 and my pieces are not for the timid but for those who are a bit more eclectic and like to show their creative side. The LRW Designs line is not only a way to express yourself, but it can positively impact the environment and our communities. Every item is crafted with care and great attention to detail in a variety of designs and colors that reflect the most current fashion trends. The pursuit of unique design and high quality craftsmanship is my number one priority. I strive to make each piece of merchandise a joy to own.

On Etsy since 2012

The pursuit of unique design and high quality craftsmanship is my number one priority. I strive to make each piece of merchandise a joy to own.

My journey in life has brought me full circle. As early as I can remember I was destined to make things. I spent my spare time sewing and painting and in 1969 landed an art scholarship to college. The next decade I honed my skills as a fiber artist - weaving, spinning, felt making, sewing and hand painting fabrics for sculptural fiber art and art to wear. In 1978, while living in Washington D.C., I crossed paths with another fiber artist and SILKSCAPES INC. was born. We created hand painted silk clothing and accessories and began wholesaling our products to local boutiques. Fate intervened shortly thereafter and we found ourselves separated by half the globe. My husband's career as an infectious disease doctor brought us to the Philippines for 2 years where I located a batik factory and taught the local artisans our hand painting techniques. We created a collection widely recognized for its artistry, whimsy and enduring high quality. In 1984 I moved to Atlanta and my partner ended up in Boston. Over the next 2 decades we had to reinvent our company and change with the times - but our corporate vision of 'Art for the Body and Soul' remained steadfast throughout. With partners in 2 cities, silk imported from Hong Kong, dyes from France and production in the Philippines, we made use of the word global long before the internet was invented. Before it was chic we always operated from home offices trying to balance work and family. We sold our creations to major stores such as Neiman Marcus, Nordstroms, Saks Fifth Avenue and I appeared on QVC. We were even asked to create wardrobe items for The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and The Golden Girls TV shows. In 2000 my partner retired and I continued the business under the LRW DESIGNS label. Production remained overseas until the end of 2012. In 2013 I decided to return to my roots as a crafter and go back to creating one of a kind textile creations.
