From the Artist

My name is Louise Silk and I am an artist, writer, and quilter living and working from my loft in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For over forty years, I have been creating art that combines aesthetics and functionality with meaning and memory for family, friends, individuals and organizations. My newest venture is SilkDenim, a web-based shop selling one-of-a-kind individually hand-crafted 100% recycled clothing, bags and quilts.
