Inspired by nature, I feel the need to look back at a craft that is handmade and using an all-natural light source: the sun.
My cyanotypes are made by coating high-quality hand made paper with a light-sensitive emulsion. We then expose it in direct sunlight for several minutes using a photo negative to get the best image quality. Finally, the print is washed and fixed with water to stop the reaction and prevent fading.
What you get is an amazing, blue image... with absolutely no ink involved! And since each print is handmade, tones will give gorgeous, subtle variations. The beauty of cyanotypes is that each print is absolutely unique.
Cyanotype print includes a custom-made magnetic wooden print hanger. Hand made by me :)
Each piece is signed, dated, and the place it was made.
