Rebecca Mason

Rebecca first became inspired by Batik while in Malaysia and then learned the Art of Batik by attending workshops and classes.  She has now practised Batik Art for over 30 years, while bringing up a family and working as a doctor.

She is now a Batik artist specialising in doing Batik on cotton and silk, including velour. Rebecca particularly enjoys the fluidity, flexibility, unpredictability and crackle effect of the wax. She also loves being creative with colour and the freedom of abstract designs.  Her Batik is influenced by the colours and shapes of her local Yorkshire countryside.

Her cotton pictures are varied in design and theme and use a range of Batik techniques. She also makes Batik ties and scarves each of which are uniquely designed.

Rebecca supports a Charity called ‘The Haven’, a national Breast Cancer Charity, and has held several events selling her Batik framed pictures, silk scarves, glasses cases, cards and other Batik items in aid of the charity.

The Haven’s mission is ‘to help people through the physical and emotional experience of breast cancer by offering a free, in-depth and personalised programme of psychological support and complementary therapies.‘  Rebecca also makes Batik hats for people with hair loss. She supports this charity and donates through the sale of her Batik artwork –
