Quality Crepe de Chine silk scarf before sewing as I opened the parcel.
'SATSUMA WOMAN' and 'ANGEL FEATHERS AND LIME'.
2. I love working in meditation, surrounding myself with an array of brushes, tools etc. and working directly onto the silk. The study of 'Zen' linked with a love of Japanese culture and the work of the Masters. Working from the 'Soul Centre rather than with the eyes' created beautiful imagery of Angels, butterflies etc. which I was able to transfer into the computer to create wearable art. Working in meditation from Sound was amazing.

'COSMIC TANKER WHEELS'
90cm, Crepe de Chine Silk Scarf
4. And my fourth inspiration - the backs of road tankers!! Again the Japanese influence, geometry, the circle, Japanese culture, asymmetric design placed in space. And when I discovered that tankers carry liquid chocolate - well, if that's not inspiring......? I will have to show you 'The Birth of Chocolate'
'PATH OF THE FIREFLY'
Pure Silk Long wrap 45cms. x 183cms
'SHRIMPS AND MERMAIDS' Sik Scarf
Another scarf created from images drawn directly onto the silk in meditation
'COSMIC TANKERS' Pure silk Art Scarf. 90 x 90cms.
Whale Tankers allowed me to photograph tankers whilst being made. Some of the pieces
are as striking as an Anish Kapoor sculpture. I saw the 'zen' in the roundness of the backs
of road tankers and especially loved working with the septic tanker. To make a stunning silk
knowing it was a septic tanker, but up to me to make it beautiful, was a Joy and a challenge.
