Animal Prints                     

These prints are created using a technique called dry point etching. They are small and intimate and inspired by the antics of my friends’ puppies and dogs, usually whippets. They are created by scratching the images into special etching plastic. I rub ink into the grooves and using damp paper made from rag I put it through an etching press to make a print. With this process I can ink every picture differently. I am not interested in creating a limited edition but making each print a unique artwork.
