My process involves creating a hand-crafted image on paper by using an old world etching technique. Specifically, the image is painstakingly hand drawn and etched on the surface of several copper plates. Inks are then hand applied to each plate surface. This process is very complex, for the different plates need to align accurately to print a high quality image on paper. The piece is meticulously finished by hand applying oil or watercolor paints with a brush. The result is an etching with intricate detail and vibrant coloration. The bird subjects in the larger pieces (34 X 24" or larger) are depicted life size.
