A local Newcastle artist, Franca Sibert, has been inspired by the natural environment where she lives, and is creating beautiful handmade artworks using an age old technique called Cynotype.
Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that creates a cyan-blue print.
Her sensitivity to the
technique enables her to create gorgeous,unique pieces,in various shades of blue, ranging from a soft turquoise to vibrant electric blues.
She also uses the technique of cyanotype to create these lovely muslim scarves,all of which are individual in design.
We were impressed with the wonderful variety of prints, ranging in size and design. Images included insects,such as cicadas and
butterflies and a large range of native shrubs,seed pods and flowers.
Franca's artworks are available at the
Olive Tree Markets, at the Junction in Newcastle. You can also email her at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information or to arrange a personal viewing.
Next time you are in Newcastle,or just visiting the Olive Tree Markets, take a look at this impressive artist's work. You won't be disappointed!
