Amy Ferguson’s printmaking work “is based on her love for drawing and printing, as well as nature and all things fantasy.” Her work is inspired by methods of creating art that are rooted in the history of printmaking while embracing modern developments in creating imagery.

Drawing, however, is the most important part of each piece, taking hours of time to create each delicate line with pen or etching needle. It is about making art, from cards to etchings, that can be accessible to a wide variety of people; art that can take anyone to a new place or an old memory.
