This is the beauty of the land

Jesennia of A'Kai Silks has been creating silk veils for dancers since 1999. She is self taught and created a technique for dyeing ombre colored silk that was especially attractive to dancers and anyone in moving art. Although she enjoys the dyeing process, she also believes that the photos used to feature the silks are every bit as important as the silk itself. Jesennia strives for a photographic approach that is casual using natural sunlight and beautiful outdoor locations (mostly in Hawaii and Arizona). Ombre dyeing is definitely an art form but is considered "easy" and many of the photos of ombre veils have built the colorways and catalog that is still in use this many years later.

A few years ago Jesennia also started experimenting by painting on various types of silk. Her father had taught her oil painting when she was a teenager so the eye for color carried over into painting silks. The painted silk are offered as veils for dancers, and also certain wearable art pieces such as scarves, dresses and ruanas. The paintings are multi-process works and are truly one of a kind. No other artist can duplicate the work. Jesennia is still experimenting with various ways on how to photograph the paintings, since allowing them to flutter in a breeze does not always pick up their intricate subleties.


Jesennia established A'Kai Silks as a brand name to dancers and is expanding into resort and beach wear, along with tie dyed clothing items in various fabrics and styles.
