Artist's Statement:

While a student at the University of Washington, Seattle, Wa. I was introduced to the art of Batik,. and fell in love with the medium. Batik is a process...drawing your design on white, natural fabric, securing the cloth (silk, cotton,rayon) on a frame and using a tjanting tool or brush for applying wax. Using cold water dyes, working from light to dark, always protecting the layer underneath by repeating the waxing. The wax is ironed out between layers of paper, then into boiling water to remove remainder of wax.

In the last five years, I began a more direct process which some call Batik and others call Silk Painting. Silk paintings are created on white silk. The dyes are painted onto the stretched surface of the silk . The dyes flow into the fiber and bond with the proteins, becoming a part of the silk thread. In order for the colors not to run into each other I use variety of resists: wax, gutta, and sizing and then setting the dyes by steaming. This process allows for greater freedom in using many luscious colorsl But, I must add, both methods are unpredictable which adds to the excitement.

Receiving my MFA and having twenty-eight years teaching the Arts at Elementary and Secondary have enlightened me to many new and challenging methods so along with Batik and Silk paintings, I also do drawings, paint in watercolors and acrylics, mixed media, collage, and am an amateur photographer.

EXPERIENCE
I had the pleasure and honor of ‘opening the eyes, hearts’ of many students in both Orange and Seminole Counties in Visual Art and Gifted Education for over twenty-eight years.

I participated in many outdoor and gallery shows in Clearwater, Melbourne, College Park, Pinecastle Pioneer Days, Winter Park, Oviedo, and University of Central Florida.

I conducted Batik workshops at Crealde when I had a studio; participated in many summer sessions at Penland School in North Carolina and Arrowmont in Tennessee
