Contact Information and Frequently Asked Questions
What is watercolor batik?
Batik is thought of as a traditional wax resist Indonesian textile. With my work, I replace the traditional cloth with rice paper and the dyes with watercolors. I layer the wax and the color washes creating a delicate transparent look with rich textural interest.
What materials do you use to create this look?
I like to paint on rice papers and very fibrous papers. I have tried many different waxes, but right now I am using canning wax which creates more cracks in the painting for the paint to enter. I also like very pigmented colors to get brighter color washes. My favorites are Daniel Smith Watercolors.
What inspires my paintings?
My life, my surroundings, nature, animals, my travels and adventures, my family, and my hobbies. Looking at my art, it’s evident where I was in my life’s journey and what inspired me. My paintings are the storybook of my life.
