Intaglio Etching

My love for line pencil drawings made etching an obvious media to explore. My love of pattern led me once again to draw birds which are full of pattern as are their environments. It’s always a pleasure to solve the puzzle balancing birds, flowers, vines and leaves. Not simply decorative, the birds are anthropomorphic. They have subtle personalities and interactions if only with the eyebrows. Often there is a hierarchy and someone has been left out or sad.
