I create each of my pieces in my home studio, surrounded by acres of farm land, and a multitude of birds, deer, and other wildlife, in addition to my tribe of pugs and other pets. No two scarves are ever alike; each bears the personal imprint of the moment in time in which it was created. I like to use a variety of techniques, including multiple dye processes, silk-screening, and hand-painting, to arrive at a one-of-a-kind, truly special work of wearable art, suitable for display or framing when not being worn.
Scarves are made of a variety of different silk weights and hands, including crepe, charmeuse, habotai, chiffon, and velvet; in addition, some are made of a rayon silk blend or cotton. I use professional grade silk dyes, steaming and heat setting as necessary, to create bold and brilliant ever-lasting color.
All scarves can be either hand-washed in a mild detergent and hung to dry, or simply dry cleaned. I sign each piece before it leaves my studio and include washing instructions with every scarf.
Recently I have started posting my original oil paintings, encaustics, and hand-pulled prints. Each of these is also a one of a kind original. All paintings are painted on canvas board, which is a firm surface that will easily pop into a basic, standard sized frame, unless otherwise listed in the item description (just a few come ready to hang, no framing needed). Prints come with a mat that will also fit into a standard size frame. If there's a piece you'd like to purchase and have framed, please contact me for framing and shipping costs.
