This etching, Heather's Magnolia, is one of an edition of 50 total prints. It is a drypoint etching created by drawing the image on a plexi-glass plate. For each print made, the plate has been hand inked, wiped, and printed on an etching press. The prints were dried, hand signed, and numbered.

*Reproductions of this etching are available on hand made blank note cards also offered on this sight


What Inspired me to create this etching?

“Heather’s Magnolia” I had a dear friend in Kentucky that was most sad to leave her beautiful Magnolia tree behind when she and her family had to move. I have always had a great love for Magnolia’s being from the South, seeing one is like going home for me. As luck would have it, I was close to finishing a drypoint etching of a Magnolia bloom so I decided to name it after my friend. I gave her a print as a going away gift so in a small way, she could take her Magnolia with her, and a little piece of me too.

What are Drypoint Etchings?

Drypoint Etchings are drawings that are etched onto flat metal or plexiglass plates using sharp drawing tools that engrave the lines and patterns into the plate. Once the drawing is completed, it is then ready to be inked up. A small mat board squeegee is used to drag ink across the surface of the plate and a piece of Tarleton cloth works the ink down into the lines and grooves of the plate while the non-image areas wipe fairly clean.

The inked, wiped plate is placed face up on the press bed and covered with a damp piece of archival, printmaking paper where it is hand cranked through an etching press. The pressure from the roller actually presses the damp, softened paper down into all the grooves and lines in the plate and lifts the ink out of them causing the inked image to be transferred from the plate, onto the paper. Etchings are not photographic reproductions which are created from one single artwork, but they are original prints because each print in the edition has been hand inked, wiped, printed, signed and numbered by the artist who created it. Although there is a small edition of the same image, each print is in essence an original work of art.


Artist Biography updated Oct 16, 2018

I graduated from the University of South Alabama with a BFA in graphic design in 1985. My primary areas of concentration in college, and in the years to follow, have been Drawing and Printmaking, although I also enjoy working in Pastel and Oil Painting. Over the years I have participated in many outdoor art shows, exhibited my work in local galleries and had my work accepted, exhibited, and awarded in various National Shows across the United States. One of my pastels, “Late Summer afternoon on the LeTort” was printed in a Fly Fishing Book published by Stackpole Books called “Selectivity”, written by a well-known author and fly fishing guide. I was also blessed to have a large color etching displayed in the Augusta National Club House, accepted and sold at the Master’s Golf Tournament from 1992-94. I was very fortunate my “Augusta National, View from Magnolia Lane” color etching was purchased by many patrons from Miami to California, Europe to South Africa as well as from the Far East. Truly humbled and honored, some of my patrons were past Master’s champions.

I enjoyed the opportunity to teach Youth and Adult, Drawing and Printmaking classes at the Danville Community Art Center in KY from 2011 to 2015 until my husband and I moved back to Ohio. We currently reside in Beavercreek, OH where I work full time in my home studio and am currently exhibiting my work at two different CO-OP galleries in the Dayton area, the ARTery Gallery, and the Village Artisans Gallery in Yellow Springs, OH.
