Growing up surrounded by stage art and costumes influenced my creative direction.
Color choice and composition are determined during involvement with the process of making the piece. My design scheme--partly figurative and naturalistic, partly abstract--uses characteristic swirls combined with geometric patterns and are intensely saturated with color. My pleasure in silk painting is in creating accessories that compliment everyday wear and make it unique.

I grew up in Zagreb, Croatia in an artistic family. My mother was a ballerina and my father an actor. Growing up surrounded by stage art and costumes has influenced my creative direction. I studied fashion and design at University in Zagreb and subsequently worked as costume designer.
Shortly thereafter I began painting on silk, realizing my interest in depicting the natural beauty of my country trough the texture and fluidity of the fabric. In 1993 moved to Chicago where I continued to develop and hone my talents as a fiber artist.

I think my work reflects the boldness and drama of theater. When faced with canvas, a blank piece of silk, I think how to incorporate a variety of tones that will accent the colors worn in everyday clothing and yet enhance the overall effect.

Both abstract and figurative, my designs are intensely saturated with color.
Using “serti� the French approach to fabric design, combined with tie-resist, shibori and block printing, I create art to wear.

My pleasure in silk painting is in creating accessories that complement everyday wear and make it unique.
