Flag Iris, Iris x germanica

In the Victorian language of flowers Iris stands for hope, wisdom, trust and valour. The Greek goddess Iris was said to travel to earth on rainbows. She enabled humans to communicate directly with the heavens by bringing messages between the two worlds.

A beautiful print from my ongoing series of Botanical X-Rays. All the prints in this series are based on original Cyanotypes.

I wanted to create a collection that would let you see deeper into the inner workings of plants. The technique and images I have developed are a mix of art and anatomy. They give you a view of the structures/skeletons of the plants that are not normally seen with the naked eye.

Marita Wai , founder and cyanotype artist, self portrait in blue

Marita Wai

NOrthfields, London

Hello, I'm Marita.

I've been an artist all my life but only realised it recently.

I make art using little more than flowers, sunlight and iron salts, which I think is simply magical. The process is called Cyanotype. It results in soothing, Prussian blue and white images.

My art is for flower lovers, nature lovers and everyone seeking to add beauty to your life and enrich your environment. My art is hopeful and optimistic and will inspire a deeper connection to the natural world.

Lovely to meet you x
