The Artist’s Life

The Silk Road

I would like to invite you to join me on my West meets East journey.Starting from the heart of England Macclesfield in Cheshire.Macclesfield was world famous for its silk, and is now the Unesco. officially designated; 

End of The Silk Road.

The Silk Road was established when the Han Dynasty opened its trade with the west in 130 B.C., starting in Xinhua China, then ending in Macclesfield.

Here my mother assisted with the silk parachute production during World War 11.  As she laboured with silk and as I grew in her womb the sounds and smells of the silk must have affected my senses!

I think I was born with a desire to always wear silk. The feel of silk echos the sensation of the amniotic protection fluid in the womb. My designs eventually became the highly sought after robes for women needing to make a stunning important entrance especially the rich and famous.

On the silk I would paint with the needle, silk threads, jewels, beads and sequins, wonderful pictures of colourful beautiful flowers birds butterflies and landscapes.

Most of my silk thread Creative Commercial Cultural journey took place in China in Soochow and Hong Kong.Before meeting Jesus to add Christian to my life journey.

From the bestselling author of The Silk Roads comes an updated, timely, and visionary book about the dramatic and profound changes our world is undergoing right now, as seen from the perspective of the rising powers of the East. “All roads used to lead to Rome. Today they lead to Beijing”

tory of Silk the past while living in the present and studying and thinking about the future. it continues in my painting the beauty of nature up in the worlds mountains in Spain and China.
