Water color art inspires Andrea Guzzetta scarves

Andrea Guzzetta, a Milwaukee artist, takes her art seriously – and personally. So when she sets out to handcraft a colorful silk scarf, it involves much more than just producing a garment. The scarves are based on water color paintings she has fashioned over the past few years. 
 
"I'm interested in weaving all of those different ideas about who we are and where we come from into my art," said Guzzetta. "When someone else appreciates that art, I'm making a connection on a really personal level."
 
Her designs and paintings come from dreams and a personal mythology about life and death. "I believe that life and death are inexorably linked, and that each only has meaning because the other exists," explained Guzzetta. "I believe that each of us has many 'deaths' as we shed our old selves and become new people."
 
The designs for the scarves are drawn and transferred onto premium watercolor paper where they are painstakingly created in vibrant neon colors with watercolor paint, watercolor pencil and micron pens.
 
For starters, Guzzetta's scarves are built to last, using high-quality silk and a screen printing process that will maintain the bright neon colors for decades. "I want your grandchildren to be playing dress-up with this scarf," she said.
 
More importantly, though, they are true works of art. The designs mean something. "Their symbolism will make you feel powerful."
