Solar Printmaking is a highly versatile and expressive medium, transforming original drawings, paintings, photographs, JPEG’S, collage, and copier art into high quality etchings. As an artist I enhance, alter, and push and pull the value range of the image. I create a plate using UV light (the sun) and tap water without losing my image, printing a small edition on paper or fabric, and clean up without the use of turps. I do not use acids to etch the steel plate. Solar Printmaking is an artistic environmentally friendly medium.
