Veta’s original printmaking style merges the art of traditional etching with the sculptural qualities achieved by clever manipulation of matrix zinc plates, inks and paper. Many of her recent prints are the result of experimenting with jesmonite resin casts from metal etching plates which capture more three dimensional textures.
