About Me

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.

New Fabric Collections for Sale in my Spoonflower Shop!

I've been busy working in my studio and on the computer creating fabric collections for the last year and a half.  It's been quite a challenge but of course, creative and always fun!  Take a look at what you can create with m printed designs - just  a couple of items for a simple sewer like me can make, an infinity scarf!  I also made a beautiful kitchen towel with seashells.  Here are a few pics:

  1. Lovely scarfs! You did a great job as all fabrics are really beautiful! My favorite is the first one with white flowers on a blue background.
