The art I create starts with my original designs which I permanently etch into copper sheet using techniques from the old days of plate printing dating back to 1513. Acid was used then and is still being used today but I prefer the safer process of metal salts paired with a power supply. The metal salt bath can be used over and over therefore making the process much more eco-friendly.
I work mainly with copper but I also work with brass and nickel silver. I find that metal has a reflective property that adds a textural richness which changes with the light throughout the day. Metal adds a collected, timeless look which is interesting and engaging.
I create all of the items in my shop from start to finish, attending to every detail. I am passionate about quality and ensure that your art is finished and ready to hang in your home as soon as you receive it.
Generally any etched piece can be paired with any frame style. If you do not see a combination you are interested in please don't hesitate to contact me!
