Artist Bio / Statement

Having Dharma Trading as a resource for silk paints and material has really helped my artistic career flourish. I use many wonderful products from Dharma Trading; primarily, the Jacquard Dy-Na-Flow and Lumiere Paints. Many silks, including pre-hemmed scarves in 15 x 60 charmeuse; 14 x 72 crepe-de-chine; 22 x 90 flat crepe; 4 x 6 habotai sarongs; pillow covers; hankies; and sashes and yardage in silk charmeuse (my favorite material for painting... It just looks so gorgeous, whether on the shiny or matte side!). Also, I use brushes (the white ones with red handles... sorry, I can't remember the brand) and stainless steel pushpins to stretch my pieces on sawhorses or wooden frames outdoors. I love making a mess on the driveway (adds interest). I appreciate Dharma Trading's quick service and great prices, especially on large bottles of Jacquard paints, which are quite a bit lower than anything I have available locally (if I could even find large quantities!)

To me, it's all about the feel of the silk. My personal addiction to silk started at age 15 when my grandmother presented me with a lovely plum jacquard scarf. Years later, I combined my love of silk with my passion for color & design when I took a fabulous class on silk dyeing techniques at Xavier University in Cincinnati (my home), and I was off & running. Now I create original art on 100% silk satin or crepe-de-chine. I specialize in custom pieces for home décor: window treatments, couch throws, pillow covers, and loft-size room dividers. I frequently add a touch of metallic to my colors. I've traveled to some of the most beautiful places in nature: deserts, mountains, forests, rivers, and oceans. Reflecting the serenity I feel in nature is a goal of many of my pieces. Some pieces are purely abstract, while others feature recognizable symbols, like the sun or a mountain stream. I'm also a musician and composer, so musical motifs are another favorite symbol. Visit www.perfectjewishcouple.com for info about my 80s band, which has become well-known in Europe. I use some of my larger pieces as backdrops for performance. My style often reflects my passion for Mid-Century design. Each of my pieces is signed and dated.
