IN MY GARDEN
botanical cyanotypes & garden explorations
IN MY GARDEN: botanical cyanotypes & garden explorations is an artist book I completed in 2017 to contain my first year of gardening. The pages contain a variety of cyanotypes (created throughout 2016) -- an alternative photographic process that uses UV-sensitive chemistry and rinses out with water -- alongside digital images and written reflections.
Delving into my garden provided a variety of inspiration for my already-existing body of botanical work, but it quickly turned into its own story-driven project. I completed this book during the first year of my Artist Residency in Motherhood, and is a visual companion to my other reflections on creativity and artmaking.
