Inspired by the flora and fauna I see on my daily walks near my home in Essex, this piece is made using the traditional Prussian Blue cyanotype "alternative photography" printing method. The tiny Wren moves, camouflaged and largely unseen, in lushly-vegetated thickets. The hedges are alive with plant and insect life. The sound of the bees flying industriously from flower to flower is always mesmerising to me. I create each of my cyanotype images digitally using multiple photographs, which I then put together to make a unique design. My cyanotype pieces are all printed by hand, using this fascinating and traditional technique. Due to the handmade process, each print in the edition varies slightly and is totally unique.
