Artist's description:

I love my little "cage", and it has it's door open, so I can soar free and then return to safety and home.

a handprinted etching, each print is inked up by me, the artist I have added a technique called aquatint to this copper plate, which gives rich deep tones of the color it is printed in, in this case wonderful soft pastels, I have printed first the copper etching with the tree, in ochre and green and then I overprint with a sky blue to give it depth. If you would like to see me make and print an etching, go to , it takes you straight through to my library of printmaking movies on Youtube.

The size of the actual image (the copperplate)
is 8" x 8" ( 20cm x 20cm)
I have printed "Freedom Tree" on a beautiful piece of warm white velvety printmaking paper.
Paper size: 11" x 13" (28cm x 33cm)

The etching is signed, titled and numbered (Edition of 30) by me.

I mail your etching protected by tissuepaper, it comes with a nice flier explaining what an etching is, let me know if you would like me to gift wrap it!

Thanks for visiting, come back soon!
