This is a sample of what the painted velvet becomes after going through all the process of painting and steam setting the fabric. Each piece is one of a kind. I have had tremendous feedback from the women who wear these scarves. One warning though, don't take one off and leave it on a chair for a moment in a cafe or restaurant because they disappear quite quickly from what I have been told. I can only make so many at a time so look after your velvet once you get one!

2011 Happenings

Summer Art : When the studio starts to heat up I usually take a break from regular painting and produce silk vevlet to sell. This picture was taken last year in the garage. The burnout velvet arrives as white yardage and after mixing the silk paints it is stretched onto saw horses and several beautiful colors are used for each piece. This year I am producing a variety of scarves that will be up for sale in the fall season. The handpainted scarves will also be for sale in my Etsy store so stay on the lookout for that very soon.
