Silk Banners

I continue to make large work for large spaces, mostly churches. Here you can see that I like to integrate nature and its story into the themes, often biblical, that people ask me to work with.

Click on a thumbnail picture below to open a full view of the whole gallery.   There are two pages of these.

When lettering is involved I often work with a wonderful Bellingham WA calligrapher, Laura Norton. You can examples of her work on some of my banners on this page. And here is a link to her blog: Letters Aloft 

If you would like to commission a large hand painted silk banner for your church or public space contact me at [email protected].
