The etchings of Kathleen Cantin are created and hand-painted in her studio. Kathleen draws directly on the copper plates in the same manner as artists of the 15th century. She adds color to her etchings by drawing additional copper plates, which are hand painted one at a time. As many as ten colors are blended on four copper plates to produce rich effects. This technique is very difficult, and is not attempted by many artists. Because of the time involved, Kathleen creates only eight or ten etchings each year. Her work is in great demand, and is collected all over the world.

Since her graduation from the University of New Hampshire, Kathleen Cantin has participated in some of America’s most prestigious print exhibits including the 2nd United States International Graphics Annual, the 23rd Berkshire Museum Exhibition, Boston Printmakers 30th Annual Exhibition, Davidson National Print and Drawing Competition, and the 39th Exhibition of Miniature Painters, Sculptors, and Engravers Society of Washington, D.C.
Kathleen Cantin's expert command of the etching medium led to further honors when she was awarded commisions by the N.H. Graphics Society, President and Mrs. Derek Bok of Harvard University, the Franklin Mint, and Collector's Guild. Prints by this talented artist may be found in the collections of the Smithsonian Institute, the Philadelphia Public Library, the Decordova and Fairbanks Museums, The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, and in numerous galleries throughout the United States. Corporate collections include Hawk Mountain Corporation, Proctor Trust Company, and The Burlington Savings Bank. Awards include the Helen Slottman Graphics Award from the Pen & Brush Club, New York.
