About The Way to Blue

The Way to Blue

Enchanting Cyanotypes

My work is influenced by my love of the British countryside from my Shropshire roots growing up in a house nestled in the forest, time spent living close to nature in a caravan by a fisherman's cottage, a year absorbing the wild beauty of Anglesey’s coastline to now - the wonderful Conwy valley in North Wales where I work happily in my garden studio – never too far away from my beautiful twins that were born in May 2018.

I studied Visual Culture at Brighton University and have since explored many different art forms. As an artist I have always been drawn to the colour blue and its associations with nature and the infinite. I have also strived to capture light in my work so upon discovering the Cyanotype technique I was hooked by its many possibilities.

I use the old photographic process of Cyanotype invented by Sir John Herschel in 1841 to capture our delight and wonder in the intricacies of nature creating a unique range of blue and white homeware and gifts. A light sensitive solution is applied to various papers, hedgerow finds or/and negatives layered on then exposed to sunlight, the solution is then rinsed off and the paper dried, fixing the image in glorious blue tones.

'The Way to Blue' has developed over the past 7 years. Through much experimentation I have developed a popular range of unique original Cyanotypes including tealight holders, vases, lanterns, various sized framed Cyanotypes, cards and recently a range of blue and white fine china mugs. I now exhibit my work in numerous shops and galleries in North Wales and beyond. I take part in many contemporary craft fairs. As my work is all blue and white it creates an eye catching, fresh and interesting display. My best selling tea light holders have appeared in 'Grand Designs' and 'Landscape' magazines.
