About this image

The print is created with the cyanotype process, and toned with tea and wine to dull the Prussian blue of the shadows, while breathing warmth to the mid-tones and lighter areas. The cyanotype, with its distinctive blue tones, visually traverses the distance between waking and sleeping. In this world, I find myself searching to understand my everyday thoughts, from personal dramas to romantic doubts. The metaphors that emerge are both personal and universal and allow me to envision intuitive journeys through unexpected places.
