Daphne’s exhibition shows how the process of etching in its technical development can be close to a painting, she explains, using all methods with and without acid producing similar marks and textures.

“A range of subject matter and colour is used. Otherwise the emphasis is on taking a life drawing out of the life room onto an etching plate, therefore using etching as an extension of drawing.”
