Candace Futch, Silk Artist
First, thank you for visiting my site. As an artist, entrepreneur, small business, and ministry, I'm grateful. So let me tell you a little about myself…..
I'm a Christian.
Through my Facebook Page (MyBasketOfFaith) I share the inspiration of His Word and all of the promises that He provides for us. I also bring to light women that exemplify the Christian faith and how they’ve impacted the lives of others. I believe it is my privilege to share the Christian faith, my responsibility to uplift women and my honor to accomplish this through my art. In my shop you’ll see not only my art, but art from other Christian artists too!
I'm an Artist.
As a fiber & silk artist, I’ve enjoyed working hard on my craft and being awarded the Best of Missouri Hand artisan status. Now that I live in Texas, I continue to the dedication of my craft.
I've always been fascinated with color, particularly earthy fall colors. (Yes, my car is rustic orange!) I started with knitting and weaving, but in the last few years I found an unexpected artistic freedom with creating my own silk dyes and painting on silk.
It’s incredible to create my own dye colors and then to let those colors use the water to dance across the white silk, to merge with each other, and to even cradle each other in a manner that actually creates a new experience….. a true intimate color experience. “Every movement the color makes will never be experienced or seen again."
I have created 2 distinct design collections – The Regal Fashion Collection and the “I AM” Faith Collection. Each collection embraces a different purpose but stays true to the focus of creating silk garments, jewelry, and home décor so women can show a little attitude, feel special, and know God’s love.
I don’t do this by myself.
I’m so thankful to have such an incredible and supportive husband, Dave and even a pretty good ol’ studio Westie named Santa.
Thank you for being a part of my journey and supporting my small business and ministry.
