Announcement    Hand-painted, hand-dyed and illustrated printed silk scarves and shawls with a modern twist carefully handmade in my home studio in London UK.

As a classically trained fine artist, I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of wearable art. So naturally, painting on silk has come as the best idea. Heron Design Studio aims to create such wearable pieces of art that will be timeless and versatile. Every piece that is created is unique.

Each one of my hand-painted scarves is first hand-dyed with most colour left in the middle and ends left open to painting. That is followed by colours being carefully picked. After that, the scarf is painted (freehand) with no stencils or aids. Small imperfections are just a part of the hand-painting process and make the painting unique and unrepeatable.

My hand-dyed collection of scarves is colourful, easy to wear and modern. They are large enough to be worn as a sarong or a wrap over the shoulder during summer months as well as being cuddled around the neck during cold winter weather.

You can meet me at art and craft shows throughout the year or see me pop in up several markets in London. My scheduled shows are announced on www.herondesignstudio.com/events.

Bespoke service is also available. If you like what you see and want something in a similar style but different colours, just contact me, and I am happy to discuss it further.

About

Painting beauty on silk

Painting on silk is for me just another art medium I’ve ever tried to discover and explore. Since I was a little girl, I was nagging my mum to teach me and show me different techniques and help me to understand the world of art. I remember sitting with her and drawing portraits, nature or abstracts imagining myself being a full-time artist.

Then during my teenage years, I fell in love with a design, especially fashion and textile design. I decided to study fashion design and scenic costume alongside figural drawing and classic fine art lines and history of art. One day my art teacher brought in a piece of plain silk and some dyes/paints into our studio and showed us the beauty of silk art. Moreover, I fell in love again. The colours and beautiful finish of fabric was just overwhelming, and I just felt the need to learn and explore this art medium as well.

I set up my first fashion/textile art studio many years ago back in the Czech Republic, where I am coming from. The main focus was on hand-painted clothing tailored made and ready to wear. After a few years of constant growth, I decided that it was time to try something else. My husband and I relocated to the London United Kingdom to change our lifestyle and start over.

I began focusing on my large scale drawings and surreal hand-drawn digitally printed prints on T-shirts for various brands.

After giving birth to my son I’ve realized that I need more time to spend with my family, so I decided to set up my art textile studio Heron Design Studio again here in London UK and start from scratch. Naturally, my first choice was silk painting. Nowadays, I am exploring new techniques as there are new possibilities, better paints and dyes and trend of handmade products is on the rise. I also decided to join this handmade arts & crafts revolution and showcase my new hand painted designs.
