Welcome to Hummingbird Press, the website of CathyJean Clark
Hummingbird Press is the private art/printmaking studio of CathyJean Clark and Richard Clark. The studio is

The studio is 1660 square feet with the lower level a dedicated intaglio printmaking area and drawing area. It has a medium Sturges CP5 press, work areas, three medium litho rollers, and flat files for storage. The etching area is separate from the work area with an outside exhaust system.

What is an original print?
What is an Original Print?
An original print is a print made when the artist creates a new piece of work by working with one or more of the printmaking media such as relief, intaglio, screen or litho. Unlike a reproduction, where an original painting or other work is photographed and then mechanically printed en - mass resulting in what is essentially a poster, not an original print.
