My work celebrates nature in art-to-wear signed prints and colorfield paintings. The iridescent, translucent colors of my designs on silk come alive when worn, bringing dynamic grace and movement to the depictions of dragonflies, leaves and other natural wonders. The prints can also be enjoyed as art for the wall when not being worn. Cyanotype or blueprinting, marbling, screen printing, discharge and handpainting with interference colors are all techniques I use to create designs from nature as seen through eyes of a passionate gardener.

Other designs inspired by the garden include moonflowers and dragonflies. ferny corydalis, pin oak, lacy sassafras and dogwood. While each print is unique, a similar print can be created for you if the one you choose is sold. Find my botanical scarves at Southern Highland Craft Gallery in Biltmore Village.
