About the Artist:
Linda Eaton Marcille is an award winning artist whose paintings on silk have been sold internationally. Linda creates her silk paintings using the highest quality steam set French dyes, the finest crepe de chine silk from China and a one of a kind resist made only in New Zealand. She has taken an ancient Asian art form and infused it with her own joyful and whimsical style.
Painting on silk is an incredibly time consuming and unforgiving medium, just one drop of misplaced dye or a broken resist line and days of painstaking work are ruined. As challenging as painting on silk is however, it is also one of the most rewarding art forms because the two hour steaming process joins the fiber reactive dyes molecularly with the silk so the dyes take on the silks iridescent sheen. It is because of this union that silk paintings are able to produce an awe inspiring range of reflective color that no other medium is capable of creating.
Linda’s work has appeared on WCAX channel 3 News and in publications such as Vermont Magazine. Original painting’s as well as giclee prints are available in galleries throughout Vermont or by contacting the artist. If you are interested in having Linda do a custom painting of your house you may contact her through her website.
