Inspired by the mathematical genius and 'First Lady' of computer programming Ada Lovelace.
Flyology (The Language Of Lovelace) SQ was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of female photographic portraiture, photographs of an antique tin toy horse, handprinted photograms of insects wings, photographs of Jacquard punch cards, the moon and planetary chemigrams. The digital negative was then contact printed onto hand made paper hand-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 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 choose to initially create my pieces using a combination of collage made up of original photographs, paintings, illustrations and found imagery. Once completed, i photograph and print large scale negatives ready for cyanotype printing.
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.
