Mary Edna Fraser is a master of the ancient art of batik on silk. With the largest batiks in the world, she illustrates her bird's eye view of threatened landscapes. Exhibited and lectured internationally, she has been featured by Duke University, the National Science Foundation, the National Academy of Sciences, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, the Peabody Essex Museum, and National Geographic. Private and public collectors include, most notably, the Elliot School of International Affairs at George Washington University, the Heinz Center for Science, Economics and the Environment, the New England Aquarium in Boston, the American Embassy in Thailand, and NASA.
Captivated by the complex patterns from the air, she has photograped France, Indonesia, Australia, and most of the coastal United States. You can visit Mary Edna's studio on a bucolic creek-side acre, featured in national magazines and television specials by appointment.
