Artist's description:

And yet another batik on silk fabric inspired by this Northwest Coastal autumn.
This original art comes stretched and mounted on foamcore with an allowance of a 3" border for a mat.
Ready to be framed by buyer.
Contact me if you are interested in having it framed.
It ships wrapped in plastic and packed in a box using good padding.
I will ship anywhere.


Batik is the process of using wax and dyes to create designs on fabric. Wax is heated in a tool called a tjanting and then passes thru a copper or metal tube on to the fabric. Where the wax is placed, the dye cannot penetrate. I work in layers to create a design. Wax some, Dye some. When the dye touches the fabric, it spreads like water. So the wax creates a border that controls where the dye can go. Silk is such an ethereal medium to work on.
The way the dyes move around and blend in the boundaries created by the wax. Salt creates a unique effect as well. When the piece is finished, the wax is removed. I then stretch the silk on foamcore using linen tape.
I use only high quality silk fabric and pure beeswax in my work.
