Silk painting has been done for centuries in Asia, it’s been big in Europe for years, and its interest is slowly growing in the wearable art industry here. There is something magical about watching the dyes come alive as you touch the paintbrush to the silk. It flows like the ocean taking on a life of its own. It has the same effect on your soul as watching waves come and go at the beach.
Kathy Defina is a self-taught silk artist. She has been painting for over 20 years, but has fallen in love with the art of silk painting within the last 5 years. Her passion for silk painting led her to study under one of the few Master Silk Painters. She continues to learn and grow her art. Her concentration is wearable art and her dream is to have her fine art silk paintings shown in galleries.
