Silken Splendor

While adopting our daughter in China in 2003, I fell in love with the country’s people and the luxurious silk brocades in the small family owned shops. As my love for the Chinese culture grew, I had the opportunity to travel to Suzhou on the famed Silk Road and see the silk worms and ancient looms that weave these magnificent textiles to life. This series is inspired by this trip and my experience. I hand-select all my silk brocades and choose the most unusual geometric patterns and brilliant color combinations for use in my art.
