This artwork was inspired by anthropomorphism, the progression of linguistic power and communication, convergent evolution, visual mimicry and the art of masquerading.
Convergent Camouflage In Gold was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of nude photographic portraiture, illustrations of birds and cartography of the world. The digital negative was then contact printed onto hand made circular paper, brush coated with chemicals, before drying in a dark room. Once exposed to light, the piece was washed to develop a cyan blue colour, pressed dry and then hand finished with 24ct gold leaf.

This is taken from a series of cyanotypes based on females in history and mythology. Ones who particularly inspire me, deserve to be recognised and celebrated as powerful figures in time.
I want to visually tell a story with each piece to celebrate the lives of these amazing women using portraiture, symbolism and surrealism.
I expose all my pieces in natural light for up to a couple of weeks. Printing in all weather conditions, doing everything by eye and in the most organic way possible, this enable me to be at one with each piece I create.
