They are monoprints, as I like to change the hand wipe of the ink and use different hues of watercolor.
I like to mimic the changes of light throughout the day, the shifts in the color of the sky, and seasonal colors of the leaves.
The image represented started as a memory of the beautiful land that belongs to the Tunica Tribe in North Louisiana. To my delight, people interpret the image as one of their favorite places. A friend decided it was Horn Island, a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico. It made me smile to have created a landscape that is universal.

Atelier Frances Swigart has been a source for me as a designer, an architect, and a collector for 40 years. I create original work, both prints and paintings. I print and sign each limited edition. These are traditional intaglio and relief prints, not reproductions. Most are on handmade paper, often water colored. My paintings are oil on gold and silver, and copper leaf on wood.
Frances Swigart is a New Orleans artist living and working in the East Carrollton neighborhood.
