Announcement    I suffered a stroke in January while on vacation in Florida, so instead of fun in the sun I spent a month in FL in a rehab hospital. "m back in VA now, but my dominant hand is affected so simple tasks are nearly impossible. I have no idea when I will be able to create new work at this time., but my scarves are still for sale. It may take me a few extra days to get them packaged and mailed, however.

I design and create Hand painted luxury silk scarves for women who appreciate wearable art and personal service. Each is a completely unique, signed painting to wear. I do everything myself, and am a stickler for quality. Let me gift wrap and send it right to her.

"A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing...." -Keats

About

Hand Painted Dyed Silk Scarves for Women, Silk Neckties for Men

* Note to silk lovers: Always be sure you are buying good quality silk; avoid habutai weight, because they tend to be flimsy and do not drape nicely. I don't deal with habutai!*

I love rich silks and the effects that can be achieved with fiber-reactive dyes; I spend most of my time working on new designs or searching for new inspirations. Each scarf or necktie is a completely original painting, signed, and one-of-a-kind.
Nature's colors and forms never cease to inspire. Most every day I can be found with my dogs out in the woods and fields near my home. I am fascinated with plant forms, but positive / negative space is at the core. I never use digital tricks, because I don't know any and don't want to.

You can read my Featured Artist Interview, which is old enough to be obsolete. What hasn't changed is my work ethic. I am living my second life hard at play, fingers stained with dye, and completely absorbed in a new design experiment.

Care instructions

Fiber-reactive dyes bind chemically with the fibers and are
permanently vibrant. There is no residue; scarves are hand washable with shampoo and conditioner, just like your hair. Air dry and never, ever bleach. Neckties must be dry-cleaned, because they have a polyester insert to retain shape.
