Printmaking

Selected works from a printmaking course I took in 2011. I quickly fell in love with printmaking as a medium and spent a copious amount of time in that room exploring it. I greatly enjoyed the physical demand and messiness of it and hope to someday gather all the equipment and supplies needed to do this in my own space.

Intention, 2011 -  Aquatint and ferric chloride etching on copper. I used scrap roofing material from a local roofing supply company to bring down cost. Printed on cotton rag.
