Hand-painted Silk

For more than 15 years I have been painting on silk and love creating one-of-a- kind colorfast hand-painted silk scarves, garments and wall hangings. Using a watercolor brush, I paint on 100 percent silk using silk dyes by Tinfex or Liquid Reactive Dyes made by Pro Chemical and Dye Company. Browse my gallery to see my wearable scarves, shawls and clothing. Contact me directly at if you would like to commission a special piece.


I have been teaching adults and children art and crafts for more than 10 years and enjoy sharing my knowledge of the silk painting process with all ages. You can discover the joy of painting on silk by taking a private class with me in my studio. I also teach silk painting at: Arlington Center for the Arts , Newton Community Education and Needham Community Education. This summer I am offering week-long workshops in fabric painting and sewing to elementary and middle school-aged children through NCE.

You can see my work at and purchase and view my most recent hand painted silk scarves and garments at my Etsy shop at Silken Dreams Designs .
