A picture is a poem without words. ~ Horace

Boats and Gods. Inspiration from the sea and the past.
The artwork of ancients closely linked the two. If you spend much time on the sea you may understand why.

Silk Painting takes me in many directions, much like watercolor. I use the Serti technique, which literally means “fence” in French. I build a fence using a wax resist - to control the natural course of the paint over and through the silk, and to create the outline and detail in the painting. From there, it is much like watercolor, where I control the paint tightly for detail or allow it to flow and layer to create beautiful washes. It is a process I enjoy, and like most of my creations - the vision of the painting comes to me in a medium that will best bring the dream forward. That process I can’t explain.
