Quintessence Silk Art by Shauna Blake
I started painting in my early teens and have devoted my entire working life to my artwork. I have a love for nature and the outdoors and use the inspiration and energy it provides to create my art.
In 1994 I graduated college from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh where I studied Graphic Design and Illustration. I worked in the Graphic Design field for 7 years before joining my husband, Brendan in his glass art business in 2001. Here I expanded my art by studying and creating lampwork glass beads.
Then in 2009 I discovered silk painting. I found that painting on silk was the perfect fit for my creative and expressive artistic style. Thus Quintessence Silk Art was born.
"I have a passion for painting on silk, quality and customer service. I want all my customers to feel the love and joy that I put into each piece of artwork! I want to create artwork that you can enjoy for many years to come."
What is behind the Name…
Quintessence in classic and medieval philosophy was believed to be the fifth substance in addition to the four elements (air, water, fire and earth) thought to compose the heavenly bodies and to be latent in all things.
Thank you for visiting my Etsy shop!
My silk ribbons and scarves are hand painted using the finest non-toxic dyes and steam set for hours to ensure long lasting enjoyment. Steam set dyes have more vibrant colors and will not fade over time.
Since the ribbons are hand painted the colors blends are seamless with no harsh lines or dye spots.
My scarves are hand painted one at a time and are truly a unique and one of a kind piece of artwork.
I offer a high quality product and excellent customer service and fully stand behind my work. If you are not fully satisfied, I offer a 100% money back guarantee (minus shipping).
