This artwork was inspired by Marie Curie, double Nobel Prize winner who changed the world with her pioneering work on studying radioactivity and research into cancer treatments. Symbolised here by cells and butterflies, they represent endurance, change, hope and life cycles.
Nobel Marie XL was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of female photographic portraiture, a blue morpho butterfly and hand illustrations of cells. The digital negative was then contact printed onto handmade 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 Italian copper leaf, treated with a chemical wash and heated before applying.

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 enables me to be at one with each piece I create.
