Gorgeous Silk clothing and art

Yesterday, while we were still wandering around Docklands, trying to find our way home, we came across a shop filled with fabulous paintings, silk art and silk clothing. Just gorgeous things!
Helen, the lady who makes it all, was very friendly and showed us lots of her work. She has a tiny space where she was working on some beautiful clothes. I will have to stop moaning about my work space, hers was tiny and she was making gorgeous clothing.
Helen told us that a lot of her work is based on the Mallee and Alice Springs, with a lot of aerial views. She makes her cloths and her art work in the same theme.
Here is a link to her shop.

Yep, it sure is gorgeous. I liked the ones pictured under "silk shoulders" the best.

Parlance, the pictures don't do them justice. The little 'shoulder' pieces could be worn in a variety of ways and would be fine with casual clothes and as evening wear.

Hi Mary, this is gorgeous work. I think Helen is a very clever lady to work across the various mediums. Inspired to get my paints out, though it is sooo hot and humid....... maybe tomorrow.

Hi Theregatha,
Yes, it is too hot and humid but she certainly does beautiful work. Maybe I'll be inspired when I get used to the summery weather.
