Artist Bio

Laura Stacy creates vibrant batik designs on natural fiber fabrics. Then typically, if they are not made to be framed, she transforms the two dimensional design into wearable art. The humble purse, evening clutch, messenger, or diaper bag becomes art in motion when a Laura Stacy batik design is carried into everyday life or out on the town. Because they are all hand drawn and hand-dyed, no two are ever exactly alike.

“The spark for my batik design was kindled in the 1970’s when a hippie friend taught me the magical technique in her basement. It was a time for wild pattern maxi dresses and Peter Max designs and we went where imagination could take us with the garage doors up with the sun streaming down on our work tables.”
