About me

I was introduced to the cyanotype process when I was a photography student in Edinburgh.

It’s a captivating, unpredictable process used to create unique, beautiful images.

Inspired by an abundance of nature here in Shropshire, it is a wonderful place to gather and grow plants for my work.

What is Cyanotype?

An early photographic sun-printing technique discovered by Sir John Herschel in 1842.

It was made famous by botanist and photographer Anna Atkins who published the first ever book illustrated by photography in 1843, ‘Photographs of British Algae, Cyanotype Impressions’.

Architects and engineers in the 20th century used it to reproduce documents and plans aka blueprints.
