2016: Threads of Summer

Inspired by the early cyanotype cataloguing of Anna Atkins and Anne Dixon in the mid-1800s, ‘Threads of Summer’ is a seasonal exploration of local plant-life foraged from the Gorleston area of Norfolk, UK.

Cyanotype photographic prints of picked flowers, leaves and branches are permanently fixed onto repurposed and recycled fabric, then traced with coloured thread, immortalising them beyond their natural season.

The project has been regularly exhibited around East Anglian, including at Great Yarmouth Library, Norfolk (2016), St Augustine’s Art Café, Norwich (2016), Nunnsyard Gallery, Norwich (2017) and Norfolk Wildlife Trust’s Cley Marshes (2018). Prints of the artwork as greetings cards and postcards are available for sale.
