Bio: Cicely Gilman I was born in Boulder, Colorado. In 1968 she relocated with her entire family to Vienna, Austria where she attended the American International School. In 1979 she received her BA in Fashion Design and Textiles with Honors from St. Martin’s College of Art in London, England. After graduating she moved to New York City where she was a Textile Colorist for various textile converters. After a six year stint in New York she decided a change of lifestyle was in order and moved to Los Angeles in 1986, where she started her silk painting business “Cicely”. She now occasionally paints for small label designers, designs commissioned scarves for museums nationwide, museum catalogue work, and contributes various art shows. She is a member of the Arroyo Arts Collective, and The Surface Artists Association. She is married to Kerry Thorne, and currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
