Beautiful Batik

"Magical Music" $1,200 - 29x35 framed

Terri Haugen is an award winning self-taught Artist, who is best known for her Batik paintings. Batik is an ancient cloth art traditionally made using a manual wax-resistant dyeing technique. Terri is considered to be one of Americas foremost Batik Artists, and her work has been featured on the covers of National Magazines such as Yankee and Readers Digest.

Terri's work is collected worldwide; her strong sense of design along with her romantic nature and painterly qualities has brought international recognition, for her Batiks. Each of Terri's Batik paintings reveals a command of materials and techniques. She has mastered the traditional method of overdying and combines that with more modern techniques. Her work features a wide range of colors and subtlety of hues, to complicated bright color combinations difficult to achieve in Batik. Her experimental work is fun and unusual.

Batik, is an ancient art form. It has been known to exist in the 4th century BC, in Egypt where it was used to wrap mummies. It was also used in early times in  Asia, China, India and Africa.
