Do you have a favourite photograph in your collection that you would like to see on your wall as a piece of art? Blueprints are a beautiful and unusual way to explore photographic images and make for an elegant and simple piece of art for your home. Even better when they reflect a personal experience or recall a personal memory.

It works like this:- you send me a high res photograph of your house/landscape/tree/building/vehicle, etc. and I will convert it into a negative and then print it by hand, using the Victorian Cyanotype process into a lovely A4 size Prussian Blue print onto watercolour paper.

The Cyanotype process is a 19th Century photographic process that uses iron salts and sunshine to create a beautiful Prussian Blue colour; it is the original 'blueprint' and was used by architects and engineers to reproduce drawings. In the 1800s, botanist Anna Atkins was the first person to use photographs to illustrate a book by using Cyanotypes and this is the same process that I use today!
