I use different media on my silk paintings; earth pigments, crystals and metallics,
which give them a rich luminosity.
I've designed clothes all my life since my College Design training and worked for the largest companies in the UK, as well as in Paris, Hong Kong and Florence, before designing made to measure for individuals.
Whist working in Hong Kong, I saw Chinese women painting on silk for the first time, in a workshop, and became fascinated. I then taught myself, using it for my clothing design. When living in Crete, I saw natural dyeing and became interested in textile dyeing of silks and velvets; using it for clothing and for scarves.
I do have a few paintings in my workroom/studio to show, but will I happily take commissions. I also make personalised cards and paintings for special occasions.
