The Beautiful Silk Art of Jean-Baptiste

The work which I create on silk reflects the vibrant beauty of the tropical paradise where I grew up, St. Lucia.

I am a self taught artist who has been painting full time for over 35 years. I have discovered that working with water based liquid pigments on silk can create effects in lighting and texture that no other medium can. I seek to create art which is totally new in composition and technique. I want all my work to create an experience of joy and beauty for the viewer. To me art is the personal expression from the life experience of the individual. Mine is all about how I see this beautiful existence.
