About Diana's Art

I look to my gardens for endless and awesome inspiration. These images are  expressed through an Intaglio Printmaking Technique called Mezzotint. 

My process begins with creating a rough surface across a copper plate. Using drawing tools (burnishers and scrapers), the plate is hand carved to reveal a particular image. 

The plate is inked, wiped and passed through a press transferring the ink onto a piece of German Etching paper. Color inks are applied by hand before each run of the press. 

The Mezzotint technique proves to be rewarding as well as challenging. Manipulating a plate to bring an idea to surface is a completely fulfilling and creative experience as a printmaking artist.
