2015 Participating Artist
Katalin Ehling has had a long art career doing many art forms. However, it is batik that she is passionate about and has been doing for over 40 years. During the last few years, Katalin has added mixed media non-representational paintings, collage works and has become fascinated by the unpredictability of encaustic monotypes.
Her current series reflect her heritage, thus calling them “Personal Biography.” Katalin is originally from Hungary and its language and culture were a large part of her upbringing. Over the decades, travels have taken her to many parts of the world including Indonesia, Japan, China and most countries in Europe. These places were very inspirational, but Hungary still remains closes to her heart.
Katalin was honored to use her batik skill as the medium to illustrate a children’s book. This was the first children’s book to ever be illustrated using batik. She has also written her own book, published in 2011, entitled Waxing Life, a memoir of her 50 years as an artist. The book is available on www.amazon.com.
