New silk artworks

With the Makers Workshops in Burnie promoting me as a watercolourist specializing in silk painting I have been focusing my efforts lately on more silk works. Here is a sample…. a tie with geometric design of flat areas of colour contrasting with the lovely patterns of the salt technique, silk scarves (always popular) with free flow colour and  floral designs of garden flowers using gutta , matching brooches/scarf rings to hold the scarf in place or wear as a complementary accessory, one only silk pendant of a tiny painting under kiln formed system 96 glass, one large soft lightweight shawl in vibrant autumn tones (sold) and  cards combining encaustic with silk fibres …… more to come.


Collage with handcrafted felt by June Hope

I have had the privelege over the past week (and a few more to come)of helping felt maker/artist, June Hope, frame these wonderfully textural works for an exhibition at Burnie Rialto later in 2012. With the texture, colour, incorporation of photography and shells in a collage abstracting the landscape these artworks speak to me.
