This artwork was inspired by Greek mythological winged creatures, Sirens and Harpies. These bird- human hybrids are found in The Odyssey and The Seventh Circle in Dante's Inferno.
Siren Songs At Sunset was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of female photographic portraiture, and hand illustrated birds to create the dress. The large digital negative was then contact printed onto hand made paper that had been brush coated with light sensitive chemicals, before drying in a dark room. Once exposed to daylight, the piece was washed to develop a cyan blue colour, pressed dry and hand finished with chemical painted and heat treated copper 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 enables me to be at one with each piece I create.
