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.

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

My dominant hand is affected by a stroke so simple tasks are difficult. Packaging your order is a valuable asset to my occupational therapy, and I take pride in getting it to you safe and fast. However, gift wrap is beyond my ability right now.

Custom and personalized orders

You can ask.

Wholesale availability

NOPE!

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.
