Sue Orchant

Handpainted Silk

When people walk into Sue's booth at an art festival, she tells them, "It was all white silk before I got a hold of it, and I had a little fun! Color makes everything better." Truth be told, Sue has a lot of fun. She loves what she does! She has been painting on silk since January of 2000. She has studied many processes of painting on silk including gutta serti, shibori, and soy wax techniques. The intensity of the colors you can achieve and the sinuous, illustrative quality of the resist lines draws her in! Watching the dye flow from the brush across the silk is a wonder! Each piece she creates is an original design painted on 100% silk.
