When people learn I work in batiks, they expect to see a peace sign relief on a tie-dye t-shirt. They are often surprised when they see the fine art batiks. Batiks are more often perceived as an arts and crafs rather than a fine art or technique for illustration.
I am hoping to change that perception and bring a new appreciation to this medium.
