By Diana Kisirauskiene
I started my journey as a silk painter in 2007, this being the first time that I painted on silk. I have been interested and fascinated with painting since childhood. Now I wanted to discover what was possible when painting on silk.
Flowers in particular are my specialty. Chinese art also interests me. In some of my work I use the design techniques of famous artists. Van Gogh, Climt, Dali, Mucha and Kandinsky have all inspired me. However, I find painting on silk the most interesting form of expression that never ends. In addition to this, I also pursue other forms of art – felting, jewellery and decoupage.
My biggest passion remains my love of silk painting. I have learned so many different techniques when painting on silk, but I am still searching for new opportunities in this art form.
Painting to me is like meditation, relaxing and creating things what i like the most. I am still on a journey of discovering new features and techniques; I feel I am in love with it; its my passion, my dream, my destiny!!!!!!!

Hints and Tips by Barbara Gabogrecan
Thank you so much for your comments Diana. Your work is indeed beautiful and some show incredible detail. I am sure our readers would love to know how you achieve this detail. I have had a look at your website www.designersilksbydiana.com I love your quote on your home page “A picture is a poem without words”. You have some delightful landscapes and I love the painting depicting birds. I too have been influenced by Van Gogh, Climt and Chinese art. I really do think that everyone painting on silk should study the work of some of their favourite artists and learn more about how they used the seven elements of design. I do hope that you will find time to look at some of the other posts and leave a comment.
