Joanna is an artist of hand painted silks. She is a native of Warsaw, Poland where she studied art and architecture. Her background of silk painting comes from an old Polish school in Milanowek, small town renown for its silk manufacture and artistry since the 17th century. In this school, the artists emphasized inspiration and transformation of nature onto silk fabric. The silk then became marvelous wearable art. The entire collection of scarves, ties, and other accessories is hand-painted on 100% silk. The process begins with pristine white, stretched silk. Dyes applied during the painting process are alkalic (Proction H dye - produced in U.S.A.), and are permanently fixed by steaming under high temperature and pressure. A finish of gold or copper print results in unusually beautiful and deep material effects. Finally, the silk fabric is specially treated to enhance color and smooth texture to ensure many years of enjoyment. Joanna’s designs are always recognized and highly appreciated. Among those who enjoy Joanna’s art are Richard Deli, the Mayor of Chicago; Michael Jordan and his mother, and the former presidents of Poland - L. Walesa and United States - B.Clinton. She always creates something new, whether it is a classical print, floral, or abstraction. Joanna combines European elegance, sense of color with an American vitality and sense of humor.
