My end "product" is a finished hand-made print...an art piece. Any other form of my work is only a reproduction. But since many people will never get to see one of my prints, reproductions are a way to share what my art is like.
I try not to extend this bias to the work of others...mostly I am successful. I am equally an image maker and a print maker. To see only a reproduction of my work is to only see half of my art.
