Painting on Silk

These scarves are some of the beautiful pieces of work that Gilbea has in her etsy shop. The scarf just below is a scarflette that can be worn around the neck, on a purse, or in your hair. Gilbea will be adding many new items to her gorgeous collection such as silk bags, shirts, headbands. You can also check her blog for photos of other wonderful handpainted silk items.


Today's feature is on etsy shop Gilbea. This is what the artist has to say about herself.

"I used to be a watercolors painter, but a few years ago I discovered silk painting, and now I'm hooked to it!!! For a few years I have been seriously working on silk fabrics, making all kind of different stuff, from silk paintings that hang from the walls to silk scarves or brooches and t-shirts.Right now I'm experimenting with new things for this next season: Spring/Summer 2008. Silk bags, shirts, headbands, and a big etcetera. Come back again in a few months to see my new creations!For more information visit my website:"
