New Asta Art Site

Hand painted silk scarves

I’m creating a new art blog in time for the Fall 2011 St. Paul Art Crawl: Asta Art. It’s under construction, but check it out from time to time. I’d love constructive feedback!


I had my first piece accepted into an art show! Before you get too excited, it wasn’t juried or anything. But it was fun to have my piece exhibited along with the work of well-known artists. It was at the Minnesota Textile Center in their show called A Common Thread. Here’s a look at my piece:

It’s a beaded silk scarf hand-dyed using a Japanese technique called Shibori. I also embelleshed the edges with a complex pattern using glass beads. Very fun to wear!
