I mostly design and paint silk scarves, but over the years I have painted many metres of silk that have been made up into garments. I have worked with various weights and weaves from chiffon for a prom dress, shantung for jackets, crepe de chine for dresses and antung for a wedding outfit.
For example these two scarves (above and below) are part of a series influenced by details from the medieval painted rood screens found in many parish churches across East Anglia where I live.
For three years before the Covid thing, I showed at British Crafts at Blackthorpe Barn. A great venue for a Christmas Craft Event and some lovely customers too.
As well as painting silk scarves and silk for garments I make textile art pieces. My silk paintings are mounted on canvas.
