This series of work is based on cyanotype prints from drawings on vellum. Cyanotype or sun printing is an old photographic process that uses the UV light from the sun to expose an image. I use it to expose negatives of my drawings onto paper.
I use my training as a naturalist and science illustrator to make accurate observations, but I am also interested in the spiritual connection between humans and nature. My goal is to capture the feeling I get when I see a lynx before it disappears into the forest, or when I startle an owl off the road with a kill. It is a feeling that is beautiful, fleeting, mysterious, complex, and also I believe universal.
