Fiber Visions: Art to Wear

Fiber Visions

One of the most beautiful booths at the Carolina Designer Craftsmen Guild's Show this past weekend was Joanna White's Fiber Visions( http://www.fiber-visions.com). 
Her hand painted silk garments in vibrant blues, purples, greens and shades of orange truly are "art to wear".

Artist Joanna White.

"Silk is a living, breathing fiber that reflects light and has an inner radiance that brings forth the beauty of the wearer. Painting on silk is like flying in beautiful skies . . . the dyes move and flow magically on stretched white silk."
Joanna White
