Biography

"Colors and fabrics have always fascinated me. And the result of dyes on silk amazed me. I set up a small place as my workstation in my house and started painting while my daughter played with her ELMO continuously peeping through her play pan making sure I was around.

I designed and painted a few scarves and showed them around. The exceedingly encouraging response that I received made me work, learn and experiment with my art even more.

Silk and silk paints complement each other so well that the end result is an elegant yet striking creation. The fabric is very light and comfortable but luxurious, and gives the softest of all touches. My designs not only celebrate the seasons but also events and moods. Each piece is designed, hand-painted and signed as an original piece of art.

I started with silk scarves, but now my work includes silk cosmetic bags, silk eyeglass covers, silk ties, silk fans and silk pillow covers. I have also started working on a line of jewelry featuring gorgeous stones and beads that complement my scarves; making it an exclusive combination!

After undergoing an extensive art management program at EWI and browsing dozens of silk painting books I was reasonably equipped with an understanding of the art and the market. Here I am sharing my moods with yours to celebrate every shade that life has to offer in a collection that grows with me and I am sure will intrigue you to look at life in a more vibrant way.

My designs celebrate the changing seasons, experiences, and the wide range of human emotions. I take special requests; I do commissioned work, and also create personalized scarves for those who want to buy an extremely unique artwork."

"The musical scarf is truly beautiful, thank you so much for creating it for me. I cannot wait to send it to my friend who is currently living and working in Antarctica (or, as she calls it, "on the ice"). I know that she will cherish the handmade goodness.
Thank you again Rabia. Discovering the treasure of a scarf that you designed and made when I finally dragged myself into the office yesterday was such a wonderful bright spot in my day."
