Bradford intaglio printmaker J. Ann Eldridge creates connections to the outside world
“I’m not doing anything unusual. Almost anyone can go outside in their backyard and see what I’m seeing. I guess I’m trying to get a connection between people and the outdoors,” she said.
Eldridge, who grew up in central Massachusetts, always loved the natural world and had an early knack for drawing. While studying at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Eldridge says she found printmaking upon discovering she was a “terrible painter,” and later learned the intricacies of the intaglio process from a woman in Worcester, whose etching press Eldridge would later inherit.
