(I will begin accepting orders for pillows as of Jan 01, 2020 – taking a short break to enjoy the holidays.)
Capture our favorite pet photo on a hand painted silk pillow.
Would you like to capture your pet on a pillow as a rememberence>? It only takes a good photoprah (digital preferred)
I create a sketch of your pet based on the photograph, and translate that sketch to silk. The silk is sketched using a permanent resist outlining, Next the silk is stretched on a frame and hand painted,
We work together to utilize the color scheme you prefer for the background and pillow back. Once the silk is painted the painting is steamed to set the colors and permanently fuse the resist. The silk is lined, and the pillow is sewed using cotton for the pillow back, and poly fiber fill for the stuffing.
This pillow can be thrown in the wash on the gentle cycle, but must be line dried. (Cannot go into the dryer because of the silk).
How to order:
Send your favorite photo in an email to
Include your preference of colors to be used for the background and back of the pillow.
I will work up a sketch, and provide that for your approval. I will also provide an estimate of how long this will take to complete,. I ask that you allow at least 2 weeks for me to complete the work.
