What is an original print?
An original fine art print is an image conceived and created by means of traditional production of a hand made plate that is inked by hand and 'pulled' on an etching press. This is as opposed to the definition of a 'print' that is a photographic reproduction of an original work of art in any media.
Each inking up and pull makes a unique transfer of the image from the plate thus making a 'Unique Print' (UP before the title under the image) . All my works are UP or AP (Artist Proof print).
I may use different colourways but I do not do multiple editions of the same colours - so they are all one offs.
