Sally Ryan's wearable art embodies what many other textile artists aspire to: Sophisticated, highly wearable designs; a resist-dyeing technique of her own invention; a fascinating combination of color and texture; and a natural instinct for what women of all ages want in art-to-wear. Since she began working with fiber in 1978, Ryan has learned to perfect almost every aspect of painting on fabric. "The thrill of discovery fuels my passion for working with color and fabric," she says. Her passion for color inspired an award-winning line of silk wearables, renowned for their fluid shapes and fresh color combinations. Sally Ryan's current collection features luxurious velvets and silks and an innovative resist-dyeing technique that she has perfected since the mid-1990s.
