Another silk I painted when I was taking a class and studying Irene Wellington. She combined her calligraphy with illustrations and I took this to the next level, by doing my work on a silk. This is a poem about bugs feeling the earth quake when people walk by. $125.00
Taking a class with Renee Jorgensen and learning about the calligraphy of Irene Wellington, I decided to do my calligraphy and illustrations on silk. This is a little story about snails, and their slime. I put the poem into the lines of slime. 11 x 60" I am also proud of the leafy background which is accomplished with no resist. $125.00
This unusual silk is crepe de chine, and was painted with thickened dyes and no resist. I was in a class at SPIN in Santa Fe, and gave myself the challenge. The dyes were different from my usual, thus the color, BUT by using thickened dyes, and many hours of careful painting, I was able to achieve this with no resist. Diane Tuckman was in the class and gave me high praise. Thank you. $125.00
This silk is 35 x 35" and depicts a close up of coral with a black light on it. I painted this at the SPIN conference in Santa Fe in July. $150.00 When I tie the ends together, it makes a wonderful shawl.
My career involved two creative passions: teaching and art. Both passions have enabled me to create. My passion is an all-encompassing one in relation to teaching and art. Sometimes I am consumed by the need to create. A pencil, a brush or a pen in my hand brings me a feeling of contentment.
