Rosalind Faiman Weinberg is a scientist, painter and printmaker. She was born in England and has lived and worked in France, Sweden and Israel before settling in Urbana, Illinois. Her artwork is a visual reflection of her surroundings and of the human spirit within those surroundings. She works in watercolors, pastels, acrylics, embroidery and, above all, printmaking. The slower process of printmaking enables her to delve deeply into her subjects and take the time to more fully explore ideas. She works with traditional techniques like woodcuts, copper plate and stone, and is now experimenting with the greener process of solar plate intaglio. Instead of harsh chemical, solar plate uses light to etch images and water to develop them. The interplay of light and subject was always important to her, both as scientist and artist, so this new technique is an appropriate extension of both.
