Story Behind the Art:

It encouraged me to continue, which was a good thing since some shops later placed orders.

I love to design my batik with earth tones. I think most of the batiks found on the market these days are made with too many bright colors. I admire dull colors, which tells about my simple, easy, and free character. I also enjoy mixing colors and creating my own tones. Sketching with a pencil releases my mood, my feelings, and my thoughts on the cloth. This craft is my pride and my life a...
