Basia has been writing Pysanky for over four decades, gathering in the kitchen during Lent to carry on the Ukrainian tradition.
She finds the creation process very soothing and meditative, and look forward to the moment of melting off the wax to reveal the design.
She writes pysanky with traditional patterns, but also enjoys creating egg art with fresh interpretations and original designs (like my beach-inspired seashell patterns).
They make great gifts, especially to commemorate a birthday, anniversary, new home, or just to share with someone special.
