Silk Painting and Wearable Art by Carol Silks
(Across Broadway from Amante’s Coffee, and down the alley behind Essence Studios)
I am a passionate silk painter. For over 15 years I have been drawing inspiration from our Colorado environment. Starting with white silk fabric I paint, dye and sew to create one-of-a-kind art. I create silk scarves and change colors and patterns with the different seasons. I paint wall hangings and table coverings of Colorado flora.
Each year I learn a new technique. Several years ago I studied Shibori, a Japanese method of creating patterns on fiber. More recently, fascinated with Nuno-Felting, I begin combining silk painting and felting using native Coloradan alpaca fibers to create unique shawls and jackets..
I teach silk painting, Shibori, and Nuno-Felting at my studio in NoBo Art District. I also offer studio time to advanced students.
My art is available is many Front Ranges stores and at my studio.
