Announcement    "I've been interested in the myth of the Green Man for many years and have seen and read pretty much everything published on the subject. I came across Sheila's work quite by chance and was immediately taken back when I saw her print of the Green Man. This is by far the best interpretation I have ever seen - A mysterious and captivating image. Superb quality and fast no fuss postage. Absolutely delighted, this print will take pride of place - Thank you" Bryn Reynolds Aug 2022

Etching, a method of making prints from a metal plate, into which the design has been incised by acid

I specialise in soft ground etchings.
To make an etching I draw the picture and then make impressions of feathers, leather, lace, leaves and grasses into a soft wax that covers the surface of a zinc plate. This is then immersed in acid that 'bites' grooves into the plate wherever the bare metal is exposed. I repeat this process numerous times, gradually building up the textures and tones until the image is complete. The plate is then inked by hand; pressing the ink into the grooves and wiping the surface clean with muslin and tissue paper. This goes through a press with damp paper that lifts the ink from the lines creating a mirror image print from the etching plate.
I then print a limited edition that are numbered, named and signed.
As the etching plates are individually hand inked and wiped slight variations in the colour and tone across the editions is characteristic of these artworks.
