Mi Desmedt is a painter and etcher from Belgium who also has a studio near Saint Cyprien. Susanne, I thought of you the whole time I was here, as well as the other artist’s studio 🙂

This is an etched plate which has been run and can be used to print again. Often, a plate is used multiple times for one art piece, adding layers of color to the image. Mi explained that all of her pieces are original because she applies fresh paint to every piece, making each one unique.

Themes in Mi’s work revolves around the natural environment. She has a subtle and sometimes striking way of presenting her creations though fine detail and unexpected, yet harmonious color.
