Is it an original?

Is it an original, or is it a print? Nancy uses the etching press as an integral part of creating her original artwork. Her medium is monotype. A monotype is hand made on an etching press yet it is called a “print”. In this context, “print” does not mean “copy”. So monotype prints are original artwork. The question “Is it a print or is it an original?” can tangle up terms. All of these images began as original artwork. Some were printed, going back and forth between classifications until they were finalized, framed or mounted. The monotype, cyanotype or hand-embellished Giclée prints are absolutely unique. The hand of the artist is apparent in all her pieces; even the seamlessly created photographic dreamscapes, made by overlaying multiple images, reflect her personal vision. Nancy produces the highest quality final artwork possible.
