Hand Dyed and Painted Silk Wearable Art
My goal has always been to combine art and practicality. Majoring in Industrial Design at Pratt Institute taught me high ideals in the union of art and function. Now I’m pleased to produce a product that is a highly functional garment as well as an original painting. These pieces can be hung on the wall as well and used to enhance an outfit.
A few years ago, I became fascinated, as did most of the art loving population, with the brilliance of glass. I searched to find a way to incorporate it in my clothing and came up with the see through effect seen in my scarves, purses and shawls. I later took up welding in order to make the frames for table and hanging lamps I'd been dreaming of making.
