Amy Waltch

Trained as a painter, my passion has been printmaking for over twenty years.
I have always worked from nature. First pod shapes, then flower images, and now birds.
I spend over half of the year living overlooking a salt marsh where I am given the opportunity to watch many different birds that have inspired my work. I had the feeling of wanting to escape, to fly away. That’s when I began to carve birds into wood for printing.
During the pandemic I have been working with gelli plates. I have been collecting seaweed from the beach and printing it onto the gelli plates.
