The theme that I express by copperplate engraving is “Small happiness”. I draw “the story of small life” by overlapping it with small animals, plants and flowers. I am healed and encouraged by the gestures and expressions of animals. They gently remind me that there are important things in the activities we repeat so naturally that we don’t even notice.
