Artist Statement

For over two decades, my primary artistic medium has been silk painting.

In the realm of creative work, I find both joy and challenges, serving as the authentic sources of an artist's happiness and inspiration.

My feelings, dreams, and thoughts materialize as droplets of liquid dye on silk, transforming into a therapeutic art form. Through the highs and lows of life, this medium acts as a gentle therapist, illuminating the joyful moments and guiding me through darker periods. Each stroke doesn't just turn a plain silk or canvas into art; it transforms my entire world. Every drop of dye on silk is like a sprinkle of magic into my existence.

I explore various genres, including still-life, landscapes, and symbolic figurative compositions. When capturing the gentle and mysterious essence of women in my drawings, I convey feelings of joy, peace, and harmony. Harmony, to me, is the poetry of lines and colors, a living entity within the artwork.

Painting on silk involves creating art on fabric, with silk serving as the canvas. Why silk painting? Each technique possesses its unique beauty, and for those who appreciate diverse textures, silk is a visual pleasure. The shimmer and transparency of silk create a delightful surface, whether worn as a piece of clothing or displayed as a painting on the wall.

In every stroke and hue, silk painting allows me to weave the magic of my existence onto the canvas, creating a visual symphony that speaks to the senses and brings joy to those who embrace the tactile beauty of silk art.
