Summer Abstraction 1a


The exquisite textiles, the chemistry of mixing dyes, the brilliant colors, the smell of melting beeswax, and the magic that takes place when removing the wax from the fabric all led me in 1966 to pursue batik as my primary art form.
In the course of fifty years my art has evolved into an adventure of dreaming and everyday living. It has become the combined interaction of a creative existence and an essential life force. The completed work is the outward sign of my personal synthesis of ideas, dreams, images, travels, and relationships.
In twenty years I want to look at my work with eyes of a wiser woman and smile at its freshness.
