Born and raised in the United States, Anna Jeretic has now resided in France for decades. In her studio on the outskirts of Paris, near the forest of Fontainebleau, Jeretic paints. Sometimes she does so with brushes on canvas, but far more often she uses the brayer on her copper plates. Her color intaglio prints, mostly sugar-lift aquatints are printed from a single plate. She uses different viscosities to combine two or more colors using a single matrix. The forest is her main source of inspiration, though the animal kingdom sometimes makes an appearance in the form of a soft-ground etching.
