Importance of Color

Ancient civilizations believed that the earth was cradled by an enormous blue sapphire which reflected in the blue skies and deep blue oceans.

  • Blue sapphire is known as the stone of wisdom & wealth
  • Dark sapphire blue inspires creativity, intuition and meditation
  • Sapphire blue is calming & relaxing
  • Sapphire blue signifies power, beauty, intelligence, royalty & leadership

Color can influence our emotions, our actions and how we respond to various people, things and ideas. Much has been studied and written about color and its impact on our daily lives.

Silk Flat Crepe

A bit like Habotai but slightly crisper and with a more pronounced sheen. A very lightweight silk with a beautiful sheen. The weave is a type of crepe weave that is flatter on the surface, shinier than Habotai, but not as shiny as satin. Hand rolled hems with 100% silk thread. 

The Meaning and Magical properties of Silk

  • wealth
  • luxury
  • softness
  • smoothness
  • prestige
  • transformation
  • magical insulation

An interesting myth about silk is that it is a ‘natural magical insulator’, meaning that it will keep magical energies contained within itself and its contents from influences of the outside world.

About SilkArt

The magical charm and mesmerizing quality of silk compelled me to embrace it as my canvas of choice. 
The abstract series has been created using brushes but without using gutta or resist.
This free approach allows the dyes to travel freely across the silk and the results surprise and excite me every time.
The process is very intense and I have to be quick to get in as much detail as I can before the dyes dry.
There are no second chances in this process!
