Medium: Textile ArtAnn Suzuki's artistic focus for the past thirty-five years has been on colour and design as it relates to textiles. She works in the ancient technique of batik, using silk, wax and dyes to create unique colour combinations and intricate patterns. She hand selects her silks, which are mostly from India, China and Japan. Silk responds so well to the batik process, taking the dyes in a very intense way, colour over colour mixing and blending until the batik is completed.
"The design and creation of one-of-a-kind garments is the next stage of my work. Each batik seems to lead me towards a garment design – jackets, coats, suits, gossamer evening tops, funky hats and winter silk scarves. My pieces attract people for many different reasons, which I enjoy."
