Since I remember, I always wanted to be an artist…
My name is Dita and I am the studio artist. I draw and create the illustrations, choosing colours and putting the compositions together. Each one of my scarves is treated as a painting. It all starts with blank sheet of paper and an idea about the future design. Then sketching, choosing colours and finally composition takes place. And even though it might sound as a hard work, I do enjoy every bit of this process. Great care is taken to choose every colour, with every picture drawn, with every print received back from the printers. I adore beauty of silk and its deep colour tones allowing the painting to literally come to life.
Drawing, painting and printing have been my passions ever since I remember. My mother likes to say that I was born with pencils on my fingertips. I studied fine arts and fashion design in Prague Czech Republic. I set up my first studio when I was very young making hand painted silk scarves and designed my own and unique tailor made clothing. Then I re-located to UK to pursue my art/fashion career. My illustrations can be found on T-shirts for various companies and I sell my own illustrations.
Through this process I discovered passion for textile design creating my own illustration using all kind of tools – hand painting, hand-printing and now digital print giving me ultimate freedom and control over the whole process. I grew to enjoy the process more and more and would want others to enjoy the beauty of the products I create.
