I have been doing this type of Batik work since I returned from a month in Ghana during the winter of 2005. I use a stamping technique to apply the wax. I love the artistic and creative process, and seeing how the colors and patterns interplay and present themselves.
People often wonder where the name of my company came from. A few friends came up with the name Burlington Basement Batiks, as I was living in Burlington, Vermont and had my studio in my friends’ basement. Then I moved to Boston, and set myself up to work in my backyard. So, B.B. stands for both where I’ve been and where I am currently. Studio B.
