About

The magic song of silk.

Thank you for coming here!
My mission is described very well by one of those people who have ordered a custom singing silk scarf:
"I described for Maria the vision I had, and what a special lady my mother is, and she brought my vision to life in a way that far, far exceeded my expectations!
The look on my Mother's face when she looked upon her special gift, is one that I will hold close to my heart until the end of my days.
If you're looking for a once in a lifetime gift, for someone who means the world to you, or even for yourself, please trust me and look no farther. You couldn't ask for a more loving, talented, or inspiring Artist."

I have been painting as fas as I remember myself - my father is an artist so painting was for us a normal way of living. Firstly my favorite techinque was watercolor, but 17 year ago I discovered silk and that was love from the first sight.
At the beginning silk painting was for me just a lovely hobby and way to express my creativity. But soon I discovered, that my scarves were loaded with some really special energy - they helped people to have more self confidence (for example in presentations), to keep inner warmth and energy, to make healty eating choices and even to get well from different illnesses. This added a special value to my scarves.
I painted a lot of special silky gifts - for the members of my family, for my friends and colleagues. Later helped my friends with one-of-the-kind gifts for the people they cared about.
But after the birth of my first daughter in 2004 the things changed. Even though I had many projects to do with PC (for example I had been writing a book that was almost ready), I soon found out that doing these things with small children is very complicated.
The good discovery was, that I was able to paint - when the baby slept I had the chance to go to my frame and add some strokes to the scarf, this is a thing you can do even if you have just 15 free minutes.
Later, when my child grew, I painted the scarves and at the same time sang her songs or told stories, and soon she joined me in painting.
The only problem was that the number of scarves in my box grew and all my friends had already got several of them. So I started to sell them, firstly in local art stores, and in my personal web page, but after joining Etsy in 2009 this is my favorite place to sell. I love the people here and the personal communication, I have got clients from all around the world and many of them come back to me again and again and we have become good friends.

Welcome to the fairy tale of Singing Scarves!

All my scarves and ties are truly unique examples of wearable art.
They all are from 100% silk.
They are hand painted with love and skills (I have painted on silk for over 18 years and created more than a thousand scarves!) with professional steam set dyes in smoke free environment.
The dyes are fixed with steam under pressure which makes them a permanent part of the fiber: the colors will not fade, they are light and water resistant. Gentle hand wash with lukewarm water, ironing while still wet gives the best result.

When purchasing a singing scarf, tie or silkpainting you will get a personalized leaflet. If you provide me necessary information, there is written the name of the person who gets the silky gift, from whom, why (is it a Birthday, Wedding, get well or some other gift).
There are also given instructions for care - with proper care natural silk art lasts for years!
