This silk scarf “Pretty in Pastel” features Lotus blossom images and small squares, in blue, pink, green, turquoise, marigold and purple. A delicate scarf measuring 140cm x 25cm, it is signed by the artist, Maija Zemitis. It truly is a piece of wearable art!
Scarves are an inexpensive, feminine and classy accessory any woman can use. My scarves are designed in a large variety of colours and styles.
I use different fabrics (silk, cotton, linen).
Wear my airbrushed scarves in several ways. This silk scarf can compliment a blouse, dress or jacket. Able to be tied in all manner of ways, scarves enhance any outfit and make compelling fashion statement. It is my hope, that the woman who owns one of my scarves feels that she has an item that is something completely exclusive. Wearing this piece of wearable art often and in various situations, whether at work or at play shows an expression of her individuality.
For many years, my dedication was to printmaking: intaglio, silkscreen and lithography.
I studied at Montreal Museum of Fine Art, School of Art & Design and later went on to study Fine Art and Art Education, at University. My main interest, at the time was silkscreen. Later, I returned to Ontario, where I enrolled in a course in Surface Design at OCA, in Toronto. Silkscreen printing was the technique used. Now, I am working with natural dyes and Indigo shibori techniques.
I have sought out and interacted with textile artists, during a recent trip to India, which included a textile tour. I continue to do so. Following awe-inspiring trips to Thailand and India, in recent years, my theme of choice is the Lotus blossom.
In Hinduism and in Buddhism, the lotus flower represents purity of body, mind, and spirit.
