Hand-Painted Silk Scarves or Wall Art

Loretta Petraitis - St. Petersburg, FL

Silk scarves and wall art are by Loretta Petraitis, who is originally from Lithuania and has lived in the United States since 1996. Her works on hand painted silk are often based on her interpretation of a passage of poetry by Robert Burns, James Weldon Johnson or Emily Dickinson, where she strives to find truth in her subject. She chooses materials and colors that help express her playfulness and freedom. She starts with graphic eskiz placed on a small piece of paper. From this, she transfers her vision to silk where the lines, colors, and brush strokes blend together with emotion and harmony.
