focus for the past thirty-five years has been on colour and design
as it relates to textiles. I work with the ancient technique
of BATIK , using Silk, wax and dyes to create unique colour combinations
and intricate patterns. I hand select my silks, which are mostly
from India, China and Japan. Silk responds so well to the BATIK
process, taking the dyes in a very intense way, colour over colour
mixing and blending until the BATIK is completed.
The design and creation of "One of a Kind"
garments is the next stage of my work. Each BATIK seems to lead
me towards a garment design
.. jackets, coats, suits, gossamer
evening tops , funky hats and Winter Silk scarves. My pieces
attract people for many different reasons, which I enjoy.
The Originals Spring Craft Show in Ottawa is the
beginning of my year and the first showing of the new material
and designs that I have been working on throughout the winter.
