"Deer Hunters" is the name of this original piece of artwork, and it is an etching. This truly is a perfect gift for any deer hunter in your life as well as any other hunting enthusiast in your life. This work is a wonderful solution to decorate a very special wall in your home, office, even a Hunter's "man cave" because of the subject matter, but even more so because it is a timeless piece of fine art.
It is truly a perfect and unique gift, especially for a hunter, or serious art collector.

This original etching is number 38 of an edition of only 50 Deer Hunter prints that were created.

"Deer Hunters" has been accepted into and won various awards over the years from both local and National Art Shows as follows:
*NLAPW, National Women’s Exhibition, May-June 1991. Honorable Mention in Fayetteville, AK.
*Colorado Springs Art Guild, 46th National Juried Fine Art Show, Feb-March. 1991 Jurors’ Cash Award. Colorado Springs, CO.
*25th Annual Central South Art Exhibition, Tennessee Art League, June-August 1990. Rite Angle Frames and Gallery Cash Award, Nashville, TN

*Watercolor and Graphic Arts Society, May 1989, Honorable Mention, Mobile, AL.
*ESAA Members Spring Exhibit, April 1989, Merit Award, Fairhope, AL

Each print is an original work of art unlike a photo reproduction and there were only 50 prints created in the edition. The print pictured is number 38 of 50, and I only have 10 left available for sale.

*Print Dimension image size is "7 3/4 x 12", traditionally matted, framed size would be "15 x 18 1/2". This print is sold un-matted and unframed in an archival, resealable bag with acid free foam board backing.

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


How are etchings created?

It all begins with a thin copper plate that I spent months drawing and etching the image into the plate with acid, lovingly modelling, re-drawing, re-etching, and perfecting the image on the plate until it created the print you now see. Each individual print was created by inking the copper plate, wiping it with tarlaton, placing a piece of damp acid free and buffered fine art paper on top of the plate which is then hand cranked through my etching press. The press helps transfer the inked image from the plate to the paper. The plate is then re-inked and printed for each of prints in the edition.


What inspired me to do this etching?

My husband and I lived in Southern Alabama and at the time he was an avid deer hunter. He hunted with friends and family near Castleberry, Alabama and although I am not a hunter, I went to pick my husband up after the hunt was over, and was totally awestruck at the medieval, primitive shed where the deer was being cleaned. It was so hard to believe in the 21st century that there were still folks living in that part of the country that seemed to remain unchanged, a place where time stood still. They hunted not for sport, but out of necessity to help feed their families. I loved the names of some of the men pictured, Turkey Man, Minute Man, Logger Man.....perhaps they were all brothers?


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 excited as I begin putting down roots in the Art community in and around the Dayton area.
