My unique, hand painted cyanotypes are a blend of painting, collage, printmaking, and alternative photography. My work utilizes photographic imagery and sometimes pressed plants that I capture during my hikes, wanderings, and investigations of regional flora and fauna. With these works I strive to connect more deeply with the natural world around me, and learn about how native, non native, and invasive species coexist in both urban and wild landscapes. After years of working inside an art studio, this project gets me outside-wandering, exploring, and learning about the natural world first hand. Even my process utilizes the natural sunlight and water available to me to produce each unique and unpredictable piece.
