Lynn TraylorBiography: Batik is an ancient method for printing fabric, believed to have originated in Java. It is a wax resist process. I became fascinated with the medium years ago, but was frustrated with its limitations. I spent years tinkering with different means of wax and dye application, and have finally managed to arrive at techniques that allow me to achieve the detail and strong colors I desire, yet remain true to the original, ancient art form. My interests in the area of natural sciences lead me to deal primarily with plants and animals. I am currently permitted to pay for the home owned by my four parrots, and in return, they have agreed to scream, throw food, and act as occasional models for me. I am a "recovered" saltwater reef aquarium addict, but while I got rid of my tanks, I retained my fascination with the ocean and itís inhabitants, and bring both worlds into my work. The luminous, stained-glass quality of batik further enhances the fantasy environments of ocean and jungle. Each piece is an original creation, (limited edition prints are available for some pieces) executed on 100% cotton fabric and fully framed unless otherwise requested. Commission pieces are available, and are priced according to the complexity of the final work. Country: USA Media: other, Framed, Fine Art Batik Style: realistic Subjects: landscapes and nature
