Sarah Hale first learned about batik as an art form while teaching in Japan in 1968. Some years later, she took a workshop in basic batik technique, and began exploring the medium as a way of saying something new about an often-painted landscape. Her experiments pleased her, and in a few years she was making a living as a batik artist.
Sarah lives in a small village surrounded by lakes and bush land, and she never runs out of subject matter that both challenges and satisfies her. More of her work can be seen at her studio in Arden, or at www.ardenbatik.com.
