In essence I’m a painter who creates silk scarves. My work begins with a drawing, the challenge is to add colour, preferably unrealistic, that enlivens the image, reflects a mood and imitates the effect of light hitting a surface.
Occasionally I print a single painting as a design, but I like to use parts of individual paintings to weave digitally into a textile design creating a more complex story.
The final design is printed onto silk, a beautiful and luxurious fabric, and finished with hand rolled hems.
