Thank you, Nina, for the comment and the feature!

Wonderful colors and art work! Featured in *Penguins in the Wild* :o)

This painting just made me laugh. It is soooooooo cool. Love the colors you used. Also cracked me up to read that if you didn't knit every day you would take up smoking. Your portfolio is fantastic.

Artist's Description

I got to experience these amazing creatures while living down in Antarctica. They walked right up to me. Batik is the process of using wax and dyes to create designs on fabric. Wax is heated in a tool called a tjanting and then passes thru a copper or metal tube on to the fabric. Where the wax is placed, the dye cannot penetrate. I work in layers to create a design. Wax some, Dye some. When the dye touches the fabric, it spreads like water. So the wax creates a border that controls where the dye can go. Silk is such an ethereal medium to work on. The way the dyes move around and blend in the boundaries created by the wax. Salt creates a unique effect as well. When the piece is finished, the wax is removed. I then stretch the silk on foamcore using linen tape. I use only high quality silk fabric and pure beeswax in my work.

About Carolyn Doe

Carolyn Doe

Welcome to my art. Please check out my new website: www.carolyndoe.com I am self taught which only means I just played until I figured something out. My ongoing education in art takes place thru my own passion and pleasure in the exploration of creative processes. Always excited by fiberarts and having been raised by a seamstress, I started working in batik on silk fabric over twenty five years ago. Batik has become my voice. When dye touches silk fabric it spreads like crazy. The wax creates a boundary. It is this dance of control/no control that captivates me for hours. Through this ethereal quality, I try to convey the essence of a place and of the creatures who dwell there. About 2 years ago I took a class on palette knife...
