RHONA TOOZE
I have been a batik artist since the late ‘70s, having qualified as a specialist secondary school art teacher from Swansea College of Art. I have taught batik to all ages in Wales and U.S.A.,whilst continuing to experiment with my own work. I have been exhibiting regularly throughout my career and have batik in public and private collections around the world. I have a studio at the Catherine St. Workshops, Swansea. I specialise in Welsh life, in this very exotic art form. I am passionate about where I live and love to try to convey that emotion in this challenging medium. Batik is very exciting and frustrating. Using hot wax on fine fabric with dyes can be precarious and I often get burnt. It’s smelly and messy but the results are always a pleasant surprise.
