Bridal gown designer Caroline takes a fresh approach to silk painting. Having learnt the techniques of this versatile medium under the expert tuition of Carole Smollan in London, she has developed her repertoire to create light, simple, pretty designs, mainly featuring the flora and fauna found in her English Country garden at Wildacre in Surrey.
Working individually with each bride to refine a colour palette and design brief for her silk painted wedding dress, Caroline will produce many samples for you to review, before ever putting brush to gown, in the way you would like. Contact the designer if you like the sound of this, and begin your creative journey…
“…the nature of silk painting is that it cannot be rushed. An exercise in mindfulness, I find myself completely absorbed in the practise of painting. I’d love to know your favourite flower, bird, butterfly or fragment of an idea that we might be able to incorporate into your gown. A silk painted wedding dress makes it an utterly original, meaningful piece, expressing your own creativity…” Caroline Arthur, silk painter and bridal gown designer.
