Inspired by nature,I have combined my love of botanical and floral imagery to the Cyanotype process.
Cyanotype are cameral-ess photographic printing process invented in 1842 by scientist and astronomer Sir John Hirschel, which produces a cyan-blue print when a chemistry-coated surface is exposed to sunlight.
My artwork is a direct photogram of leaves I have collected thought my life travels and volunteering at different botanical gardens.
Each cyanotype is a handmade original. It is an intensive hands-on process and each print is treated individually to give each one unique characteristic.
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.
