The Dreamluxe Silk Scarf Collection is Inspired by World Travel, Art, and Nature. In 2000 while traveling in East Asia I discovered the technique of Batik and immediately realized that this was the medium I was looking for to take my artwork into the streets. I eventually moved to Indonesian and began a year long residency immersed in mastering the technique of Batik. Batik is a magical and historical method of painting fabric used for thousands of years. Batik is a long multi-step process that incorporates hand drawing the design onto the fabric then using hot wax to trace all the drawn lines with a wax pen tool. The wax acts as a resist to prevent the color dyes from mixing. The silk fabric is then stretched and carefully painted using fabric dyes. After, the fabric is submerged into boiling water to remove the wax leaving a white outline where the wax was applied. Finally the fabric edges are rolled and sewn by hand. It takes 3 to 5 days to make each scarf. I only use high quality silk and dyes to create a permanent, durable, and long lasting unique work of art.
My collector is the individual who appreciates wearing or giving luxurious, one-of-a-kind wearable art.
