About The Artwork

Framed, original circular mixed media copper leaf cyanotype. Hand-brush coated. Hand finished with acid treated Italian copper leaf. Handprinted on handmade ivory recycled cotton rag paper. This artwork was inspired by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley's gothic novel Frankenstein, the popular scientific theories of the time and the relationships between electricity, reanimation and life and death states. The Lady And Her Monsters II (Ode To Mary Shelley) was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of female portraiture, hand printed paper negatives of petri dish cultures and microscopic cell structures and an illustration of a fox skull. The digital negative was then contact printed onto handmade 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 washed with acids and chemicals to create a variegated pattern. 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. The circular frame was handcrafted to house the float mounted piece.

I am an internationally recognised, London based fine artist, photographer and mixed-media printmaker. Best known for my circular cyanotypes I embrace and develop innovative ways of reworking photographic images through collage and mixed-media print techniques, and by blending science, darkroom alchemy and art. My work explores the boundless possibilities of image production in the age of modern printmaking with an aim to reinvent, recycle, redefine, experiment and preserve. Female empowerment, natural history and science are recurring themes across the work, constructing visual narratives from the lives of extraordinary, trailblazing women - celebrating their achievements, uncovering their struggles and telling the stories of these often unsung heroes. "I hope people are empowered by the story behind each piece and that the subject matter ignites imaginations and a curiosity to delve deeper. The key emotion is to feel connected - connected to the story, the techniques and the science behind the work, and to be connected to the elements of nature I introduce to explore human experience and the relationship between each of us, and the world we live in."
