Siobhan Elder - Handpainted Silk
Jack the dog and I are living happily on the Sonoma/Mendocino coast, absorbing the colors of the ocean along with the ever-present greens available to the senses in this environment where snow does not put Mother Nature to bed for months at a time.
The past 26 years have found my work available in galleries, gift stores, boutiques and at the best art shows from Park Avenue to Laguna Beach. I am filled with gratitude that I can bring joy to the women who wear my art.
Each piece goes through 13 steps from start to finish. During each one of those steps, I infuse my work with love and empowerment, ensuring many generations of enjoyment.
The passion that drives me has morphed into "Empowerment thru Accessories."
This is my mission ... to put scarves on the heads of women going through chemotherapy while empowering those involved as they learn to paint the silk and then again, when they share their creation with someone in need. This project is the most fulfilling thing I have done thus far in my life. If you are interested in this project please email me through this site.
Thank you for your interest in my work.
