It's a game of CAT and MOUSE at UMYANG BATIK in Melaka

As I stepped into the shop, a gracious lady by the name of Ha Mi Seon greeted me full of warmth and smiles. Ha Mi Seon is the Korean Artist behind the brand Umyang Batik in Melaka. 

Let me share with you some of her amazing work of art. It's all about a CAT and MOUSE GAME  at Umyang Batik, literally. You will see many images of cats and mouse portrayed through her work across bag, cotton T-shirts, dresses, pillow cases, decorative glass bottles and even clog shoes! How creative!

These are her signature cat and mouse artwork. Aren't these cute? These 2 are my favourite pieces.

The painting is actually from this dress as seen on this model. I wish they have it in my size.

Hand painted pillow case with the image of a cat for cat lovers everywhere.
Ha Mi Seon is one talented Korean artist. Having stayed in Malaysia for more 20 than years, she has truly embraced the Malaysian spirit. You can also see how she adapted her work of art in the form of a batik. Her creation, batik with cat images. Something uniquely done that your don't see every other day.
I took some time to browse through her shop and admire all the little details she made. Sitting at a corner were these beautifully hand painted bottles that serve as a souvenir. I seriously don't know how she does this. 


I have full of admiration of her work, especially the mouse creation which can be seen across T-shirts and even small pouches. These may make good gifts during the Year of the Rat or those born in the Year of the Rat may want to keep a piece of this to associate themselves with their Chinese zodiac.


Finally I see an image of a dog! #Doglover here
Here is a sneak peak at her outlet in Jalan Hang Kasturi, Melaka.

As you know I am very much a bag person, so admiring these in the form of bags give me so much satisfaction.
Make your day brighter with hand painted wearable clog shoes.

She also has designs fit for kids. Key art and designs suitable for children who loves colourful animals on their T-Shirts.



Ha Mi Seon also offer painting classes for those who want to learn painting. Her canvases are usually done on T-Shirts and cotton cloth. For painting class enquiries, you may drop her a PM here.
