As can be inferred from the subject matter of her prints, J. Ann Eldridge likes being outdoors. She grows a lot of her food and volunteers time on local land conservation efforts. It is through these pursuits that inspiration for her intaglio prints arises. Often simply called ‘etchings’, these limited edition prints are intricate studies executed in a very old medium. They are hand-drawn through a wax ground on a copper plate, etched, and printed on an unmotorized press. She tears herself away sometimes to exhibit at retail shows in the Northeast. Her work can also be found through many of the League shops and other outlets around New England.
