Hand painted silk, inspired by Island life with latitude both in location and design.

Silk painting is a wonderfully unpredictable technique that makes unique flowing patterns. I have an arts background in design, decorative art history and botanical painting, and when I had a go at silk painting I loved it.

I work in my studio as Scilly Scarves in the Phoenix Craft Workshops, painting 100% silk scarves and ties, and more formal designs for cards and fridge magnets. Phoenix Crafts are a group of fab artists and craftspeople and is open to the public. I run silk painting workshops which are fun and relaxed.

Home is the tiny beautiful Isles of Scilly; a place of inspirational wildlife, sea, sky and wild flowers.
