I have long admired the amazing printmaking done by Siri Beckman. Her prints have fascinated me every time I have seen them on my trips to Maine.
As one who occasionally does linocuts as part of my mono printing process, I appreciate the detailed expertise that goes into her exceptional works. As I start to do more and more carving work in clay (sgraffito) I have been thinking of her work again, and thought to feature it here. Her textures, compositions, and love of National Parks are all things I deeply resonate with and can easily relate to.
Siri’s work is done carving and etching in wood, something I have never done before. Check out her work in this post and on her website. Wonderful, right?
