Our September Demo Artist is Inga Strause-Godejord – Hand Painted Silk Scarves
INGA STRAUSE GODEJORD
The name of my company is INGASILKS and I specialize in painting on silk, luxurious hand painted silk accessories for women and men. I am the owner of the company and its sole employee. I do every task from procuring the best quality materials to product design, production and marketing. I am proud of the fact that I can provide my clients with one of a kind, unique, sophisticated, individually designed and made by hand piece. Each piece begins its life as a pure white 100% silk stretched on a frame. Then a combination of techniques is used to create the vivid colorful scarves, ascots and cravats, from a fluid watercolor method to a more controlled resist technique. Each piece is steam-set for hours for brilliant and permanent color. My work differs from many other silk products in the marketplace in the fact that I do not print a design on my scarves but paint each design on by hand.
Another outlet for my passion for silk is teaching. I teach silk painting courses and private classes. I find great joy in this! It is very rewarding when after classes my students say that they never expected that painting on silk would be so relaxing, so meditative; feeling they had not experienced in other art.
