Update 2020: I am currently designing online silk painting classes which I am planning to launch this summer. Details below. As many of you know I love to paint with vibrant rainbow colours when I get my silks out. And over the past few years I have created all sorts of rainbow designs on my […]
Sorry – the prize draw is closed. Hope you’ll join in next time. It’s been such a long time since I’ve done a giveaway so I thought I would remedy that as I sit here in our attic listening to the heavy rainy drumming down on the velux windows. I’d love to give this silk […]
Update 2020: I’ve been developing online silk painting classes due for launch some time this summer. More details below. I’ve just been painting a very large rainbow silk and thought I’d share some of the photos I took as I went along. I no longer have my attic studio so here I am dragging in […]

So here’s Part 2. I never did show you what this lovely piece of silk turned into. If you’ve read Silk Kaftans in Pink, Fuchsia and Burgundy Part 1, you will know that I created a silk in the batik technique with various shades of pink, fuchsia and burgundy. It was left to dry thoroughly, […]
I’ve always loved watching other people make jewellery and especially pretty pieces made from gemstones. And somehow I just never really got round to doing this for myself. Until last week. I decided to put my colourful silks and gorgeous gemstones together to bring you some lovely silk and gem combos. The first one I […]
Last week I created another silk, layered in batik technique, featuring sweet lovehearts. I’m sharing here a few photos showing you what I got up to in the process. Here I am painting some base coat patterns in 2 shades of fuchsia. The synthetic light doesn’t show this too well. When the spirals are all […]
Update 2020: I’m developing some online silk painting classes for launch this summer. See below for more details. It’s such a delight to paint gorgeous rainbow colours and as I was tidying up my Etsy shop, I realised I have 4 different rainbow silk designs to brighten up your day. What better than to showcase […]
This weekend I’ve been painting a kaftan on crepe de chine silk in a medley of pinks and burgundy. I just had to share the photos with you so far. I recently had my worktable enlarged and I certainly needed the extra space for this large format silk in 110cm x 190cm (approx. 44″ x […]
One of my latest scarves was such fun to paint – as indeed they all are. I’m sharing here a few of the photos I took along the way to let you see how it came about. Here is the first layer. Lots of different shades of blues, turquoises and greens, all intermingles. I added […]
I’ve been having delightful fun creating a flurry of butterflies on my latest silk scarf. Inspired by the latest theme set (by myself actually) for the Cosmic Web Artisans group, I decided to paint my first ever sprinkle of flutterbies on silk. The soft undercoat of mottled dyes, then steaming to fix them. And […]
I had the absolute pleasure last week of creating a work of art on a beautiful blank silk shawl made of chiffon edged with gorgeous silk satin. Although I’ve done a lot of batik work on silk, I have never explored this option on chiffon and so this was my first adventure in that arena. […]
Yesterday was the deadline for entry to the Silk & Art relaunch giveaway. I was offering one of my handpainted silk cushion covers to one lucky person in the draw. Well today I put all the names in the hat and drew one out. And guess whose name was on the piece of paper I […]
I’m feeling really drawn to pink these days and love being able to fully express that through my silk art. This latest piece was a batik silk with a mottled undercoat of 2 shades with lots of the natural silk shimmering through. I next created a heart design using wax and gave the whole scarf […]
Today I had fun again playing with the salt effect. Yesterday I sold a really vibrant scarf I painted a few days ago and since it was so popular, I have decided to keep on offering it as a made-to-order piece. Each one, of course, turns out very differently, depending on the colours I use, […]
I’ve been having such fun again the past few days mixing bright vibrant colour combinations and painting them on my silks. I just wanted to share some of the images from the photoshoot of the 2 silk scarves I steamed, washed and ironed yesterday. The colours were just so inspiring that I’ve decided to play […]
