Artist Statement

My current work is cyanotype-based prints on fabric with added hand sewing. Creating cyanotypes is magical. I print with collaged photo negatives on fabric.  Each piece has an element of chance, mystery, and failure. The creation of each piece captivates me as much as the end work.

I combine photos, drawings, and sewing to create layers with new meanings My work is an inquiry into the intersection of the natural world, and the spiritual while embracing the power of the feminine.

Cyanotype is an alternative photographic process developed in 1842. It is one of the oldest photographic printing processes. It utilizes the UV rays from the sun and iron salt solutions.
