The exhibition, A Walking Practice, is a series of prints and watercolors that have been inspired from the natural world. The artist, Lauren Sayers, says that these prints are a response to her “walking journeys” referencing specific regions, trails, water (ice), rock shapes, and roads. She records what she is drawn to as line, shape, and color.

Pressure from the etching press adds an element of surprise creating unique textures that resemble those found in the natural world.

Lauren Sayers is pursuing a bachelor of science degree in art education with a concentration in printmaking. These artworks are a sample taken from her portfolio.
