I’m printmaker specialising in cyanotypes. While I teach screenprinting and produce work for people via that medium – I always fall back on cyanotypes as being my primary creative output. My favourite thing in the world is listening to good music and just being creative in some form or another. It’s peaceful, meditative and a deep compulsion.
I absolutely love the depth and richness of colour that the cyanotype process produces, as well as the gestural brush strokes and mark making. The fact that they sit somewhere between painting, photography and printmaking is why I love the process.
I enjoy constraints within creativity – a blank canvas and infinite possibility can be a daunting prospect, so being tied to say, a specific colour, is actually quite freeing.
