Each piece is an original botanical cyanotype, created using natural material I have grown or collected. I am trained in horticulture and plant science, and so the work grows out of a detailed exploration of the botanical features of the plants. I use liquid gold leaf to highlight the form of the plants.
The work produced follows two main themes. The first is a modern take of the traditional herbarium-style of the 1800’s, and in the second the artist examines the form of the plants and the patterns these create.
