It is with great pleasure that I introduce my silk art and silk products to you.
I believe I am the only truly dedicated Indigenous silk artist producing her own label of silk accessories and resort wear. My silk scarves and sarongs come beautifully packaged with authenticities, artists story and more and they make the perfect personal or corporate gift.Many of my silk scarves have been bought and worn by dignitries and celebrities such as Jayne Fonda to name but one.
I am an accomplished and award winning Indigenous artist specialising in painting on silk.Since training with master French silk artist Marie France in 1997 I have continued to develop my style and techniques. Over my professional art career I have won awards and sholarships,exhibited in galleries in Australia and overseas, addressed the World Textile Forum in Malaysia on silk painting from an Indigenous perspective and many of my paintings are in private collections.My hallmark is quality silk art and I endeavour to produce the very best in silk accessories and resort wear possible, which reflect my individuality and authenticity and which clearly says 'Eva Wanganeen'.
ARTIST STATEMENT: I have a real passion for painting on silk, it has such a luxurious texture and delicate beauty whilst remaining incredibly strong. I love the magical way the dye flows onto and infuses into the silk and the way the different free flowing colours interact. The colours are dynamic, vibrant and limitless and with different processes magical effects can be acheived. Silkpainting allows me to express my Aboriginal heritage in a unique way which allows me to apply the icons and stories to fine art peices that hang on the wall or as a peice of wearable art.
