Artist statement 2015

Melinda Abrams Art

I love the idea of wrapping oneself in an idea–an intention– a possibility,  and creating beauty with that intention. This has led me to create this series of scarves.  Some of the scarves have no words yet were painted with nature in mind.  Others have messages painted onto the scarf.  Of course when the scarf is open and hung you can read the message, yet when it is draped and worn, the message is simply seen as a design.

Last year I discovered that my scarves can also serve as dramatic mantle art.  I display them in my home and the textures are just stunning.  I invite you to do the same.

Displaying the scarves as mantle art led me to my latest endeavor of cutting, piecing, and sewing the silk scarves into wall/table art.  Each design is created from my hand painted silks.  The backings are 100% cotton.

My hope is that when you wear Melinda Abrams Art, see someone else wearing it, or see it displayed. . .

you are moved by it’s simple beauty, and that you are inspired to live your purpose out loud and in full view.

-Melinda Abrams
