Inspired by nature,I have combined my love of botanical and floral imagery to the Cyanotype process.
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.
This image was created using a double exposure, meaning I did the process twice to created more depth.
Cyanotype is signed and dated on Stonehenge traditional fine art paper.
