KYLEE BARNARD

is the designer and botanical dyer behind Silk Diaries

Kylee received a BFA in Graphic Design from SCAD, but when she accepted a visual design job at IBM after graduation, imposter syndrome was smothering her self-confidence, self-worth and passion. Kylee always found joy and success in expressing herself through color, and her paintings were featured in various exhibitions throughout college, however it was a struggle to consistently sell work.

Recalling the comfort she felt from her silk trimmed blanket as a baby, she then utilized her passion for self-expression and color theory to create a brand of silk products that shine light on the issues women face in the workplace.
