I create hand-coloured pure silk scarves using fibre reactive dyes. Each scarf is an original inspired by landscapes, marine and reef forms and colours, rock formations, flowers, birds etc. The dyes are permanently setby steaming before thoroughly washing, hemming and hand-finishing.

At a textile course in Adelaide in the 1990’s, the effects of reactive dyes on silk amazed and fascinated me. The experimentation never ends. The surprising results of blended colours and the application of ‘texturing’ techniques contribute to the uniqueness of each scarf.
