Paulette creates "one of a kind", hand-painted scarves, garments and evening bags, using hand painting techniques on pure silk. She has participated in numerous juried art shows, galleries, and open studio events throughout the United States. In the spring of 2009 she won best of show in Fine Art at the annual Peddler's Village Fine Art and Contemporary Craft Show in Lahaska, Pennsylvania.
Her work is inspired by many great artist, including Picasso, Matisse, Miro, Kandinsky, O'Keefe and Chagall. She is not afraid to use bold colors such as rich reds and greens, beautiful blues and vivacious purples. Yet she also incorporates softer shades, such as browns, deep greens and grays into her flowing designs.
All of her pieces are uniquely designed and hand painted with French dyes, made of grade A silk. They may be dry cleaned or hand washed. Wash in cool water with mild soap. Do not soak. Gently pat dry and roll in a terrycloth towel for a few minutes. Iron on med-high while still damp.
"Her work is nothing short of wearable poetry."
