Hand dyed Art on Silk in Children’s Picture Books

Is anyone else doing this? I have no idea. The notion came to me to combine my hand-dyed silk art with my children’s books. So what I have done with two of my children’s picture books so far is combine the art with the books. I take pictures of the hand-dyed silk art and create a book around it.

It’s been a lot of work but also a lot of fun! “Whispered Dreams of Pretty Horses” was my first foray into combining the two mediums of silk art and picture books. Now today I also have a non-fiction picture book, “Animals in the Woods at Night” that is filled with illustrations of my art on silk, photographed for the book.
