I began silk painting years ago on a trip to Club Med in Mexico. I think I was 20 years old at the time. I remember I made a scarf. I fell in love with painting on silk and it took me years to figure out how to make it work for my personality and needs and likes. For instance, I do not steam because I use paint and not dye. I just prefer it. I love the vibrancy of the colours and the fact that it is hard to get perfectly straight lines, so you have to give up some control.

 

I get a lot of my inspiration from travels. I paint cityscapes as well as landscapes. Often, I paint horses or other animals, especially birds and usually there is some humour involved. I enjoy complex scenes with lots of details. I began my art career painting cityscapes and I still enjoy that and I’m happy to live closer to New York City now, so I can visit more often and take photos for paintings.

 

I belong to Silk Painters International. And I have taught private classes for painting on silk. In the early 2000’s I demonstrated silk painting on HGTV for their show “‘It’s So Clever”.

    This top piece would go so well with so many of my serigraphs (big fan). Where are they displayed?

      Hi Richard,

      Nice to hear from you.
      I have a few paintings at TheGallery@Rhinebeck, in Rhinebeck, NY and ArtOne Gallery in Beverly Hills. Thanks for being a fan!!! Yesterday I just sent in an application for the Nyack River Art Walk in June 15-17.

      Regards,
      Linnea
