JILL WELHAM

Jill Welham is a photographer and printmaker living and working near Richmond in North Yorkshire.

Her cyanotypes and etchings are inspired by nature. She harnesses the power of the sun to create botanical cyanotypes in her garden.

She loves walking and visiting gardens where she often collects botanical specimens to press and use in her work.

"I love finding patterns in nature and the serendipity and experimental nature of the wet cyanotype process means that no two pieces of work can be the same."

Every detail of a fern frond or a transparent flower can be captured and memories of the garden come together in each print as reminders of summer days".

Jill was the overall winner of International Garden Photographer of the Year in February 2019.
