This listing is for a vintage Japanese haori kimono jacket that has been embellished with a painted dragonfly motif by Taylor Faidley (see her bio below).
The base color is a soft lilac with a slightly textured woven design of brushstroke-style curves that suggest a lot of movement! The silk lining features light blue peonies on white.

Taylor has painted a set of three butterflies on the back - two fully solid blues but the featured third one is delicately painted with wings that seem to echo the shapes of the curves in the silk. Quite clever.

Taylor Faidley is an up-and-coming young artist based in rural Pennsylvania. What might have started with crayon drawings covering the refrigerator soon became a calling that spans dozens of media. "I've pursued art for as long as I can remember. As a child I loved drawing pictures of my family. Now I work with a wide variety of materials: silk painting, acrylics, pencil drawing, digital design, felting, 3D art pieces - and now I'm painting on vintage kimono! I've always loved Japan and any kind of animation. I draw inspiration from anime and hope to be an animator myself one day. Drawing characters is my passion, but koi and cherry blossoms are never far behind. My designs are always made with care and the hope that someone will enjoy them just as much as I do."
