For almost 40 years McCall has been passionate about printmaking, spending over half of that period screenprinting and in the last 15 years she has been actively pursuing collagraphy. Since the beginning of her printmaking career, she has been exploring the subject of nature. In her 2009 Nature découpée series, McCall explores the fundamental details found in nature rather than the overall rendering of landscape. In her current series, Arboreal, she is investigating new ways representing land and landscape.
