Silk Painting. Textile Art
Label: Silk Scapes
Helen specializes in ARTWEAR made from hand painted silk. She also has fabric lengths, wall hangings, scarves and cards available for sale.
For Helen, her work is a journey from the whiteness of the original cloth to colourful fabrics to the structure and form fitted to the human shape. Her textile art emphasizes the moods of colour: from luminous lemons, radiant reds, and outrageous oranges to contemplative purple and the favoured blue.
Helen uses various techniques for her surface design: handpainting, wax and gutta resist, salt and sugar, ice dyeing, immersion overdyeing and indigo. Recently a new range of indigo dyed cotton and linen clothing is available.She also teaches workshops. More information about these , please go to her online shop silkscapes.com.au
