Girl with curls

Artwork details: mezzotint engraving, 1.9 x 2.2 inches (5 x 6 cm), 2012.

This is one of a group of very small mezzotints which are my first experience with this fascinating, and nowadays slightly obscure, branch of printmaking. You can see the whole group of work here, plus links to some explanations as to what a mezzotint actually is.

Prints & Original Artwork

You can now buy prints of my work (and a few originals) in my Etsy Shop. If you would prefer to buy direct from me, or you cannot find what you are looking for in the shop, feel free to email me instead: If you are interested in original artwork, I do intend to post a list of currently available artworks in due course, but I'm in the process of moving and re-building a main website, so for the meantime please also email me for more information on originals, and also commissions.
