Announcement    'I cannot tell you how much I love your art.
I have put the picture of the three little owls in my bedroom and I have just ordered the single owl to go in my son's room.
We are about to move into our first ever home and I have saved up all month for this piece I have ordered.
Your work is phenomenal and it suits us because both myself and my son have round faces and eyes, just like little owls. I just wanted you to know that your work is well and truly loved. We will cherish these picture in our little home for the rest of our lives

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.
