Cheryl Frances Cameron, of Cygnet Silks, demonstrates the art of silk painting. Her one of a kind, original hand painted silk art, takes the form of scarves, wraps, scarf-necklace hybrids and wall hangings. All paintings are on 100% silk, colorfast and hand-washable.
Cheryl Frances Cameron, of Cygnet Silks, is a self-taught silk painter, using the silk painting serti technique (serti means fence, referring to the resist used to draw the outlines). She takes her inspiration from dance and the fluid organic shapes in nature, especially the forests of the Pacific Northwest. Born in Mississippi and raised in the Midwest, she fell in love with silk painting in 2009 and has been in Oregon, painting full time since 2011. She shows her work at art shows around the Northwest and works from her studio at Sequoia Gallery in Hillsboro.
