These 100% silk scarves are either 11 x 60”, 35 x 35", 14 x 72", or 15 x 60". I also have some silk/wool blend scarves, but the painting is different, more like an impressionist piece.
Each scarf is hand drawn, painted and signed by the artist (me!) on 8 mm Habatoi silk with hand-rolled hems . This silk has a beautiful sheen and drape. It is sensuously soft and dyes beautifully with a lustrous sheen. I use only the highest quality silks and silk dyes and the scarves should hold their color.
Each scarf is made one at a time and no two items are identical. That's the beauty of the handmade process. If the scarf has a slight imperfection, please remember to enjoy an artist's hand. Custom designs and orders welcome! ($20 extra for custom design)
CARE of Your Scarf I like to use a drop of mild soap or shampoo in cool/lukewarm water, wash gently then rinse. Roll in a towel to remove moisture, and iron on the silk setting while damp. That’s it!
I've been painting in oils and water colors since I was a child. Now I paint more in acrylics and watercolors. I love to do figure studies and portraits, flowers, and landscapes. Lately I have had the opportunity to paint pictures of some of Leavenworth's lovely historic homes and churches. I am always looking for new subjects and opportunities. Call me for a quote!
I've always liked doing things on a big scale. Here are some of my murals, on interior and exterior walls, garages, and other buildings.
