The experiment into Acrylic Plate Etchings came about from owning Armisteads Quality Picture Framing & Gallery.
I hate throwing things away if I can re-purpose them. When we use Artist’s Acrylic (Perspex) in exhibition frames, the offcuts become smaller and smaller until they are no longer usable. It seemed a shame to just throw out perfectly good small pieces. So one day I scratched a little feather design into one and inked it up and printed it. Perfection!!!! I was instantly in love with the process and began a series of experimental etchings. The Southern Boobook or Spotted Owl was my first real success.
Currently there are more plates being created. I’ve just begun a suite of prints relating to the old Gold Mining days of the area. Stay tuned. The work is in my heart, I just have to let my hands catch up with my head.
All works are on either 250 gsm Fabriano or Stonehenge paper. Most etchings run in a limited edition of 20.
