“Cyanotypes are a light sensitive photographic process discovered in the early 19th century by Sir John Herschel. To start the process, I coated watercolor paper with liquid cyanotype chemistry and let it dry in a dark room overnight. Then, I exposed the paper, with the vine pressed onto the surface of the paper, to sunlight. After a few minutes of exposure to direct sunlight I rinsed the print in water and voila! The result is a silhouette of the vine.
Each piece is a signed and titled on the back of the work. My original cyanotypes are one-of-a-kind monoprints and reflect the hand of the artist with each brushstroke. They look beautiful individually or in groups.”
