A native Montanan, Echo Ukrainetz has been a teacher for many years. She has taught History, Art, and Spanish throughout Montana and holds a Masters Degree in Computer Technology in the Classroom. She has been working in batik since 1992 and has enjoyed the experimentation with the many different aspects of the medium. Echo’s doesn’t hold herself to a specific subject matter, preferring to challenge herself with each piece from chickens to Native Americans, wildlife to western. Her fine art batiks are in numerous collections across North America. Occasionally she will collaborate on design aspects with her husband, Ron Ukrainetz.
