Tropical Dreams

Welcome to my website, featuring galleries of paintings on silk and pastels paintings.

Painting with dyes on silk affords luminosity not available with any other medium. The dyes permeate the fibers of the silk fabric, creating a wonderful shimmering and transparent effect. After the dyes are painted on, the fabric is steamed for several hours to set the color, then stretched and framed in a traditional manner.

The subjects for my silk paintings are varied, but I always try to interpret the things and places I love in color, composition, and form. I wander around beautiful northern California, where I live, with camera in hand. I try to capture the beauty in every place I travel, from Europe to Mexico.

I am hooked on the process and resulting paintings of brushing dyes on silk and I hope you will enjoy them. Some originals are available, as well as giclée prints in all sizes. Please contact me at
