Story Behind the Art:
'I'm Yuni Kristina. I learned the art of batik when I was very young, since my mother is a batik artist. She has been making batik at home for 23 years, while waiting each day for my father, a fisherman, to come home from the sea. As you can imagine, batik is a part of my life. I started experimenting with the technique when I was 13 years old, with mori textiles. Now I've learned to create different motifs and to work with other materials, such as silk. My mother is my inspiration. She and I still design together, especially the floral and bird motifs that are typical in Pekalongan batik. I would like the batik of Bali to become well known around the world, since its beauty is outstanding.'
