About Jennifer Page

She  established Cape Fear Press in 2001. Jennifer Page is the owner and holds a BFA from East Carolina University USA with a concentration in photo etching. 

Jennifer worked in NYC for 3 years following graduation making photo etching plates for various artists including Robert Motherwell, Peter Max, Richard Prince, Tom Wesselman, Lorna Simpson and others. Jennifer finds the scientific and alchemical aspects of these processes just as challenging and compelling as the creative side of the work.

She is constantly researching and experimenting in the studio/lab to improve the processes and materials used to make these photographic etchings. Jennifer also makes her own analogue aquatint screens and grayscale inkjet inks for digital  transparencies which has enabled her to have complete quality control of those facets of the photogravure workflow.
