Susan Fox

Silk Painting Artist



Susan Fox's passion for silk art was ignited during a transformative Silk Painting Workshop in the mid-2000s, where she delved into the mesmerizing realms of free-flow and the marker resist techniques. Entranced by the fluidity of dye on shimmering silk, Susan found her artistic focus. Eager to expand her repertoire, she embarked on a journey of discovery, immersing herself in both in-person and online classes led by seasoned silk painters. Through these experiences, she mastered several methods, including free-flow or watercolor, marker resist, shibori, wax layering, microwave tie-dye, and the Sistek Sizing technique. In her quest for artistic excellence, Susan has also devoted herself to the study of color theory and mixing, enriching her understanding of hue, saturation, and harmony. She has also embraced watercolor through ongoing classes, further enhancing her silk skills.

Susan's body of work focuses on wearable silk creations such as scarves, wraps, and men's ties, each imbued with a unique blend of elegance and vibrancy. Additionally, her mounted silk pieces showcase predominantly botanical designs. Susan shares her love of silk painting through teaching adult classes. Through her art and in her classes, Susan seeks to evoke peace, warmth and joy, inviting viewers to experience the soul-stirring allure of silk in its many forms.
