Inspiration

Inspiration

Joanna finds inspiration primarily in nature’s organic showcase of leaves, trees and the changing colors of the seasons.

Composing

Composing

Joanna carefully chooses the colors that will best reflect her vision for the piece and the colors en vogue for the season.

Hand Painting

Hand Painting

Hand painting on silk achieves effects unattainable by sketching on paper, as colors blend into each other and create stunning, unique compositions.

Steaming

Steaming

Each of Joanna’s scarves are steamed using her proprietary process which has been refined through her years of experience.

Softening

Softening

After the piece has been steamed and the colors sealed in the fabric, eco-friendly and organic detergents and gentle softeners are applied to elicit the silk’s incredibly soft, smooth, and luxurious feel.

Air Drying

Air Drying

Once the fabric has been meticulously hand-washed, it is again stretched on the silk frames and sun-dried in the fresh Midwestern air outside Joanna’s studio.

Hand Sewing

Hand Sewing

The naturally dried fabric is hand cut and individually sewn with an Italian serger into the specifications required by each piece, be it a scarf, shawl, or other fashionable item.

Perfecting

Perfecting

The beauty is in the details, and in the perfecting process, the finishing effects complete her works of wearable art.
