  • About this work of Art

    I chose to learn about the lithographic printmaking process because I like the rich velvet lines and varied tonal qualities that could be created. I really enjoy the different steps involved in creating a lithograph – processing the stone, drawing directly onto limestone, etching and printing. I found the stone to be a wonderful material to draw upon. It is cold to touch but then warms up. The grease pencils easily leave a mark and glide on the surface. I became interested in the limestone I was drawing on and plants that grow on it. This led me to begin drawing fern and other lime loving plants. Due to limestone being heavy I brought fern to the stone in order to draw from life. I had no idea the process of lithography would influence and inspire my work so greatly. This is part of an ongoing project.
