Welcome to Hooey Batiks!

If you would like to get an occasional e-mail telling you about any fabulous new stuff I’ve been working on and/or when I’ll be in your area, sign up for my mailing list — I’ll be sure to keep you posted. Also, in case you can’t make it to one of my art shows this year, I usually have my batiks for sale on Etsy, some custom printed Hooey design fabric at Spoonflower, and you can get a few of my images printed on fun stuff like cards, iPhone cases and mugs at  Society6.
