Printmaking is my other passion in life, especially intaglio. It's an art that has remained the same for centuries. You start off with a flat zinc plate, and through a process of resist, nitric acid, drawing, waiting, proof printing, adjustments and creating the perfect final edition, you are rewarded with an intricate, beautiful & dimentional piece.
This work was inspired from a postage stamp of an actress whose name I can't recall. I have it as my avatar on my www.emylewis.etsy.com site.
