Artisan: Alaya Cholprasertsuk
"My name is Alaya Cholprasertsuk. I was born in Bangkok, Thailand. I was introduced to arts very early. When I was a child, I had the chance to study drawing and painting under artists. At home I would constantly practice what they taught me. I also used to participate in Siang Dek (Children's Voice), a newspaper whose writers, artistic directors, and journalists are children.
"I love to design my batik with earth tones. I think most of the batiks found on the market these days are made with too many bright colors. I admire dull colors, which tells about my simple, easy, and free character. I also enjoy mixing colors and creating my own tones. Sketching with a pencil releases my mood, my feelings, and my thoughts on the cloth. This craft is my pride and my life and I think I have found my way. My dream is to see my works displayed in the decoration magazines. Yes, that's it, my works would hang on somebody's walls, somebody who loves my batik and bought it because it appeared in the magazines. I presently employ one worker who lives near my house and to whom I taught the process. But I would also like to have a little workshop where I would work and hire people who want to learn and work with me. That's what I would like to do."
