Raina Babacheva specialises in Lithography, which is a method of print making. Based on the chemical repellence of oil and water, the designs are drawn or painted with greasy ink or crayons onto a specially prepared limestone. The stone is moistened with water, which the stone accepts in areas not covered by the crayon. An oily ink, applied with a roller, adheres only to the drawing and is repelled by the wet parts of the stone. The print is then made by pressing paper against the inked drawing. Graduating from the National Art Academy of Sofia in 1994, Raina Babacheva now lives and works in Britain.
