From the art of Karen SIstek comes "Shea" Tulips as they are seen on the hills of the Pacific Northwest.
Made of 95% silk Crepe de Chine and 5% Lycra. This fabric is the top of the line and will feel amazing on. It shimmers in the light and captures the color as Karen painted it. This particular crepe has the feel of suede, has a lot of body but not too heavy, it just feels wonderful. It has a small amount of Lycra to aid in keeping its shape yet allowing for fit and drape. It has a nice body and top of the line for this tunic top, a premier choice when you want elegance.

Karen still feels the same excitement, as the first time she touched her brush to silk almost 30 years ago. She loves the big bold colors, of close up flowers. She imagines a ‘bug’s eye view of what is about to unfold…. or the petals outstretched, as seeming to dance in the wind…Or capturing a bird showing off their mighty wings and feathers.
The silk dyes are captivating, as they fill the fibers of the silk, adding depth and form.
Karen has discovered a unique technique that allows her to control the flow of the dyes, and to create fine art without the use of any resists, gutta, or wax lines. She offers workshops in her studio Washington State. Students have been traveling from around the world to learn her method. You may visit her web www.karensistekstudio.com to learn more about workshops, and view previous classes.
Karen will tell you that none of this would be possible without the love, support, and energy from her husband Rick who is definitely the ”wind beneath her wings”
