This piece was inspired by the Bronte Sisters, celebrating their literary lives, their imaginations and their unwavering sisterly bond.
The Three Sisters Study was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of female portraiture and a hand printed TB cell structure from an antique microscope slide combined with surface textures from hand printed chemigrams. The digital negative was then contact printed onto hand made circular paper that had been brush coated with chemicals, before drying in a dark room. Once exposed to light, the piece was washed to develop a cyan blue colour and pressed dried.

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.
