Hi my name is Janet Belliss
My love of silk painting started many years ago when I tried a taster session one weekend and from then on I was hooked. The vibrant colours of the dyes, the way patterns emerge on the silk as the dyes mix and flow is so exciting. Although this is just a hobby I get great pleasure creating and experimenting with many different techniques.
Some of these techniques use just dye and water whilst others involve putting salt or sugar on the wet dye to produce lovely random unique patterns on the silk.
Examples of my work can be viewed in the Galleries page.
I specialize in 100% pure Silk Scarves each one being hand painted with a unique design. See:- Scarf Gallery.
Other pure silk items I create include Cards, Bookmarks, Lavender Bags, Hankies, Cloths (great for cleaning your glasses), Framed Pictures and Decorative Cushions. See:- Silk Cards and Pictures
Each piece of silk is stretched out on a special frame for painting. See:- Silk Painting
My work is available to view and buy at a number of Craft shows throughout the year – see Craft Show Dates
