Diana Baldwin is a printmaker working from her home studio in Port Williams, Nova Scotia, Canada. She was introduced to printmaking by The Mahone Bay Printmakers. With the guidance of Ed Porter, Professor Emeritus NSCADU, etching became her main focus and passion. Baldwin’s work has been exhibited in group and solo shows including those of the Mahone Bay Printmakers and the Nova Scotia Printmakers Association.
I am a printmaker focusing primarily on etching. My subject matter includes still lifes and landscapes.
I have a particular interest in how landscapes are affected by the changing seasons and the passage of time. Agricultural and manmade patterns on the land are also fascinating to me. On my daily walks, bike rides or time spent gazing out the window my attention will often be caught by a snatch of colour or an interesting pattern or texture. This becomes inspiration for future projects.
I enjoy the etching process and the many steps it takes to get to the finished print. It gives me time to settle in and think about how I will achieve the end result. It also allows for the possibility of experimentation. I am constantly learning how this process can be adapted to aid in the interpretation of my ideas.
I find myself excited by what is offered by the blank plate at the beginning of a project. There is always hope and expectation at what will come off the press at the end of the journey.
