Historical Context:
"I began as a painter and remained studying painting until I finally recognized that the paintings were getting worse. In 1975 I discovered printmaking and eventually went on to study that at the University of Iowa. From there I moved to Rochester, NY where I set up a press, printed for other artists to pay rent and to learn the skills and from that studio I began making exhibition prints. By 1982 I began to teach at Grand Valley State University, where I continue to teach and to make prints, drawings and photogravures. I admire those who do not lose heart. I think all of the prints and drawings and paintings I have ever made were about not losing heart." -Dellas Henke
