Etching using photo-intaglio printmaking is a technique which emerged from early photographic engraving. A light-sensitive metal plate is etched through the action of ultra-violet light, enabling a wide range of times to be bitten into the plate.

The plate is then inked, wiped and printed on a traditional etching press, giving each print a unique character, enhanced by the combination of specialist printing inks and the finest quality traditional printing papers. Some etchings I design to be hand-finished with watercolour paints.
