Artist Bio / Statement
My sense of art has been greatly influenced by my memories of the mystical landscape of Israel and by the brilliant colors of the California coast. I have been working with the marbling technique for the past 6 years, mostly self-taught with the assistance of some marbling books and a marbling video.
I create hand-marbled designs on silk and other natural fibers using a process that originated many centuries ago. Layers of colorful dyes are applied onto a solution of water and cellulose that allows the dyes to float above the liquid. Using custom-made combs or rakes, I manipulate the layers of color into unique designs. The design is then transferred onto the silk when the fabric is placed on top of the composition and absorbs the dye colors.
My designs are unique and have an additional element of serendipity simply because of the unpredictable nature of the interaction between the dyes and the marbling process itself. The challenge of working with that unpredictability continues to intrigue and inspire me. Using the blank piece of fabric as a canvas, I create each silk scarf design as a one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art.
