Silks

The silks are digital collages made from small hand painted artworks and natural objects such as sea glass, ammonite fossils, pendants, roses and leaves. These items are digitally scanned and made into collages in Photoshop, using as many as 25 layers per file. When the collages are finished, the resulting artwork is printed onto silk through the giclee process using a commercial ink jet printer. The silk has a paper backing to run through the printer, and afterwords it is peeled, hemmed and ironed to set the ink. The resulting oblong and square scarves and wall hangings are bright, colorful artworks that retain the essence of the artist's work on the flowing, soft, ethereal quality of the silk.
