For some years I have also had a website and blog called ‘Jen’s Cyanotype Muse’ and will continue to do so. It is on 


Precious, cyanotype and watercolour, 2018

I’d probably known Hazel for around 70 years. She lived across the road from my home when I was a child – and I always called her Mrs Benson until I was around 70 and she insisted that I call her Hazel. Her daughter-in-law gave me the tray when she died. I don’t know if it is molded glass, cut glass or crystal – it is ‘precious’ because it was Hazels.

Baby dresses

Why baby dresses? They are small – although sometimes bigger than I think when I try to fit them on a sheet of printmaking paper. I do like how the cyanotype process shows off their construction.

Rockhampton Botanic Gardens

These were part of a series of works based on the Rockhampton Botanic Gardens. They were  my first serious attempts at cyanotype. When I left Rockhampton in 2015 the fernery was very much in a state of disrepair, and I wonder if it has been demolished or refurbished. The Thozets were involved with the early days of the gardens.
