I’ve always secretly dreamed of wearing my paintings. The idea of fun, bright, feminine designs on textiles takes me back to my childhood: my mother’s Lanz and Villager dresses, Marimekko’s bold colors and designs, and Liberty prints. I’ve now found a way to start doing that!
In lovely, colorful, and feminine motifs, I paint these scarves by hand using permanent dye on silk. I use habotai, crepe de chine, chiffon and charmeuse silk. Each scarf is signed and numbered, so you know you’ll have an unique, one-and-only scarf.
I am starting with five design styles. To see an image larger, just click on it!
FLOWER FIELD features cheerful fanciful, whimsical, capricious, quirky flowers accented with leaves and stems.

WILD FLOWERS features more of the whimsical flower designs. It is similar to Flower Fields, leaving off anything except the flowers in an overall pattern.Design details and color ways: multi color and pink/orange/red/yellow
BIG BLOSSOMS is a bolder design of single-colored flowers, their center colors an accent to the color of the petals, and green stems and leaves.
CIRCLES & DOTS is a more graphic design, with a definite hand-drawn feel. The colors are a big part of this design combining three colors in a cheerful way. Watch for more colors soon!
Design and Color detail: pink/orange/periwinkle color way and green/periwinkle/marigold color way
As I started in on this scarf new design motifs flowed out onto the silk. And while the design doesn’t specifically reference cocktails, when I first showed it to a few people, their comments were, “Do I see a martini glass?” Which then reminded me of a swizzle stick. The universe gave me the name. The elements are more graphic and geometric in nature.
