joseph austin – artist

I am a printmaking artist who makes limited edition etchings. Etching started in the renaissance times but even today it can be applied in many contemporary ways of image making.
Etching involves engraving into copper plates using an acid bath and then applying the ink to the finished plates producing a print through high pressure rollers. Each etching design has a limited edition and is shown framed or unframed.
I also produce greeting cards, art prints and calendars from my own digital printing equipment.
