Printmaking is an art form that reaches across millennia. Contemporary artists utilize the same practices and techniques as the earliest printmakers. In the same tradition, I have made a contribution to this art form by creating a series of etchings over the course of two years. These four pieces are representative of different aspects of my life and personality. The result of this project is a far more thorough understanding of the art form itself, including the technical skill involved as well as artistic ability. Undergoing this process has taught me the meaning of self-expression and its importance in my current and future work.
