Echo Ukrainetz is a native Montanan and has been interested in art for as long as she can remember. Her favorite classes throughout school involved drawing and design. She has never taken a class in batik and has learned through trial and error. That method of instruction has yielded many happy accidents as well as a few disasters. Over the years she has learned how to manipulate the wax and dye to create desired effects, however, it is very unpredictable. Upon ironing out the wax, she is often surprised. Echo has an intense interest in history which she incorporates in the description of her historical works.
Her batiks are in collections across the United States and Canada and include a variety of subject matter. Her work has been accepted into numerous fine art auctions, exhibitions, shows and galleries.
