When people walk into my booth at an art festival, I tell 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, I had a lot of fun. I love what I do! I have been painting on silk since January of 2000. I have 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 me in! Watching the dye flow from the brush across the silk is a wonder! Each piece I create is an original design hand painted on 100% silk.You can see more of my work on my website, sueorchant.com.
