Batik is a wonderful medium which I first discovered at college long ago, visiting Indonesia further entranced me
I have always been drawn to the colour, vibrancy and delicacy of poppies and have created a number of one off Silk batik poppy scarves over the years.
In creating this one many multiple layers of wax and dye have been used, with all the residue wax taken out at the dry cleaners at the final stage. It seemed the perfect design for a limited edition print.
It is digitally printed onto a beautiful quality silk. The dyes are completely colourfast and it can be gently hand washed.
If you have any questions about this scarf or batik in general, please do contact me.

I have lived and travelled widely. Wiltshire, Malawi and Hong Kong were childhood homes, then meeting my aid worker husband continued my travels to Rwanda, Khartoum , Jerusalem and Ghana.
At college a specialism in textiles, combined with a trip to Indonesia, ignited my fascination with batik. My tjanting and batik pot have travelled the world with me and now settled back in Cambridge influences from my travels find their way into much of my work.
A recurring theme is a celebration of cultural diversity. The process of batik also represents a cross cultural element, rooted in the Sultans palaces of Indonesia and spread throughout villages, craft workshops and artists’ studios in the Far and Middle East, Central Asia, India , Africa and more recently the West.
My work has exhibited in National and International exhibitions and is in private collections worldwide.
Now living in Cambridge, I take part in Cambridge Open Studios biannually and have exhibited recently with the Batik Guild, The Make Gallery and at the Textiles East Fair. My work is available at Primavera Gallery in Cambridge, The Art in the Heart online Maketplace and The Coach House Gallery in Guernsey.
My aim is to be able to share some of the beauty and rich cultural influences that I have been lucky enough to encounter through creating my batik scarves and paintings.
