Although Heather has been making batik for most of her life this intriguing process of wax-resistance dyeing continues to fascinate her; there are always new techniques and effects to explore. Using the finest primissima cotton from Java and a palette of lightfast fibre-reactive dyes, Heather constructs her batik paintings in many layers, slowly working from light to dark and gradually building the finished scene. The resulting image is often serine and breathtaking, awash with rich, subtly layered soft colours which give incredibly unique lighting effects.
