I have been a painter for as long as I remember. Since retiring, I have done several shows and participated in festivals. My scarves were so easy to transport to the festivals , sold quite well, and are fun to do. I hold three to four workshops every year locally in Lake Havasu, Arizona.

I love to read, walk, swim and have a super black lab that I have trained recently as a service dog.

I still paint in oil when the mood strikes, but really like the silk process .

I am looking forward to participating with the Silk Artist Team.

New Team Member- Malorie

I am Malorie and I live in Austin, TX with my husband Ben. I got started with silk painting at the University of Texas where I studied costuming. It took a course about dyeing fabric for the theatre and learned to work with silk. I loved it so much I couldn't stop. I mostly like working with shibori methods because the organic look that can be achieved (it's just more my aesthetic) but I'll occasionally work with resist methods as well.
