March Meeting with Silk Painting

WAS member Adrianne Hetherington gave a wonderful demo of her silk painting techniques at our March 14 member meeting.

Adrianne showed how she uses inks and brushes to paint right on silk that she has stretched in a frame. She allows the colors to "bleed" together to create highlights.

Adrianne began her career in 1972 as a textile designer in Miami. Her wallpaper books and hand-painted fabric designs were parts of collections in interior design showrooms in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, and the DCOTA building in Dania, FL. She also creates handmade tiles with her own carving and glazing technique. She was a tile art instructor at the Ceramic League of Miami for three years, 1998 to 2001, before moving to Royal Palm Beach. She also worked as art director of an 8 by 20 foot tile mural at Baptist Children’s Hospital in Miami. Her work has been on display from Miami to Palm Beach in exhibitions that include Art in Public Places in both Wellington and PBIA. Among her awards are the People’ Choice Award.

Adrianne presented this hand painted pillow to Tony Baker, who won the night's raffle.
