My work is cyanotype-based. Cyanotypes are an early photographic printing process used to record nature and make blueprints. To make the negatives for the prints, I digitally manipulate photographs and arrange and layer the negatives onto chemically sensitized papers. Then, I expose them to sunlight and process in water. The processed papers turn a brilliant Prussian blue. I use a mixture of both natural and synthetic materials to create my prints. In addition, to the cyanotypes prints I also make paper earrings out of the cyanotypes. Nature, family, and memories inspire my work.
