MY SILK JOURNEY

MY SILK JOURNEY
How I started Silk Painting
My sister who paints silk in Switzerland kept saying I should paint on silk as I was a struggling artist. She thought it might be easier for me to sell silk painting, so I eventually got the hint! And it worked.
My workspace:
A large rustic shed, fairly cold in winter but that actually works better with the dyes becoming enriched on the silk when the air is damp. It isn’t a precious space so the fact that I make messes doesn’t matter!, it is the ideal environment for my creative process. Inspired by my garden and natural surroundings north of Auckland, I have hand painted and sold well over a thousand pieces, each one unique.My favourite materials, tools and processes
Materials: Habotai silk, Paj and silk satin. I love the silk now as it is always presenting surprises as you work, there is that bit of freedom involved as the dyes are affected by different temperatures and humidity. Once I realised this after some disasters, I could start to make it work to my advantage.

Philosophy behind my work
Beauty in nature is always uplifting and expressing it in my paintings brings me joy. My garden and the beach give me a motivational lift.
A favourite quote:
"If you don’t live life on the edge you are taking up too much space."

"Satherley Silks" was started in July 2011. I have been painting all my life. I studied art under Louise Henderson at the Auckland Society of Arts and specialised in art at NorthShore Teacher's College. I am now applying my skills to painting on silk a truly exciting technique. Each piece is unique, similar but never identical when the designs are repeated, so there will always be slight differences from the photos shown. Spoil yourself or someone else with these luxury silks.

Silk is hypoallergenic so can be worn safely by allergy sufferers. It is a natural fibre so it breathes
and keeps you COOL in summer and because it is an efficient insulator it provides non bulky thermal WARMTH in winter.

EASY CARE.
Warm hand wash , towel dry and iron damp to give the best lustre to the fabric. A reasonably hot iron can be used and it is best ironed on the reverse side
especially when gold and silver paints have been used.
