The term cyanotype was derived from the Greek name cyan, meaning “dark-blue impression.” Maine artist Hannah Donovan creates one of a kind, deep blue imagery by treating paper, fabric, or wood with a mixture of specific chemicals, layering the surface with local dried flora, hand drawn figures, and occasional magazine clippings, and exposing the arrangement to 15-30 minutes of sunlight. The result is a delightful interplay of texture, color, and shape.
Hannah's original cyanotypes have been reproduced on photo paper suitable for framing and should be kept out of direct sunlight for color preservation. Check out our selection of greeting cards printed from Hannah's cyanotypes!
