handmade print by Lee Ann Frame



The Garden by LeeAnn Frame


Lee Ann Frame is a West Michigan artist who loves to travel. She teaches at Muskegon Community College. She received her BFA from Grand Valley State University and a MFA from Kendall College of Art and Design. 

All of the prints that you see are original – each hand pulled. The image begins with a drawing. Some on location and others in the studio. Printmaking has the curious fact that the image is a mirror of the original. Ms. Frame works in several printmaking techniques: intaglio, etching, woodblock relief, and lithography.

LeeAnn says, “Every day. I step into the realm of possibility. Weaving inner thought and outer stimuli, searching for the “poetic image”. I’m inspired by the places that I have traveled. My art is a manifestation of reality, memory, and dream. Layers and surface textures evolve, irregularity and imperfections – like life, find place. My hope is that my work will conjure memories, tap your imagination and an intimate visual experience.”

This talented printmaker has juried into over 100 International, National, Statewide, and Regional Exhibitions. She has juried many state and regional art competitions, plus continues to teach workshops in printmaking and bookbinding. Affiliated with the Society of American    Graphic Artists; South West Michigan Printmakers International Society of Experimental Artists; Nautilus Fellowship Member; and Mid American Print Council.

“Pitigliano”  Intaglio with hand coloring. 

I was visiting Italy and found this amazing small village surrounded by vineyards.  The owner was of the vineyard happened to be walking the rows, noticing only the grapes.  Such an intimate time to capture.





“End of Lake Street”  Intaglio

It was a day that beckoned me out of the studio.  As if there were a magnetic pull, I drove directly to the End of Lake Street and found this wonderful cottage, I had never been there before.  I asked the owner if I could sit out in his yard and draw his home, he full heartily agreed.  I spend the afternoon into sunset drawing, feeling and smelling the air, I was enveloped by this particular place and setting.  I brought a copper plate to begin the drawing onto, later developing the image.
