The theme of my art is to create and preserve a visual record of the beauty in our environment. Using traditional silk painting techniques. I aim to capture the essence of the subject and it's inherent fragility. I find that the combination of inks together with the strength and fragility of silk, provides a luminescent effect which is quite unique. Whilst I use gutta to outline the basic areas of colour, the technique is a delicate balance between the absorbency of the silk and the natural flow of the inks, so the end result is often a delightful compromise.
