About Me

My photo
Richmond, Virginia, United States
Welcome to my blog! I am a silk painting artist - having dabbled in a number of areas of artistic expression - oil, acrylic, watercolor, pen & ink. I ventured into silk painting a couple of years ago after I took a workshop with renowned artist Olivia Batchelder of Laguna Beach, California. What a wonderful and inspirational teacher she was! Since then I have been forever hooked with anything to do with textile design/silk painting. I find the dyes that I use (French imported DuPont) are so vibrant - unlike any other medium I have ever used. I am slowing finding my "niche" in the art world and would love to inspire and make other people happy when viewing or wearing my work! I am now happy to say that my work as evolved into making designs for pattern repeats for fabric! Instead of spending hours painting a scarf I now paint and upload the painted scans to my computer and make them into a pattern. Once that is complete I upload the Jpegs to my site on Spoonflower.com and I can print all my designs many times on different types of fabric.

Upcoming Show Wed., Dec. 7th at ACAC Athletic Club in Midlothian

Wow really excited to do another show this week at ACAC Fitness Center in Midlothian on Robious Road.  I'll have lots of scarves to sell so stop by!



Successful Show at the Bizarre Bizaar!

Here are some photos of my booth at the show.  Fun but exhausting.  Now have to unpack all the racks, mannequins, scarves, etc.  Many people took my card because they were excited that I am local to the Richmond, VA area.  Please contact me at lauriepysz@yahoo.com for my more information on purchasing any of my scarves.  And many thanks to all my friends who helped me man the booth!
