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. Sometimes an eyebrow can say a lot. The birds exists in situations commenting on human society.
