About the Artist

Recently retired from the University of North Florida, Graphic Designer Mary Ann Rosenthal is exploring alternative photo processes and print making techniques. In her work as a marketing professional, she enjoyed university and business brand management. Today she welcomes a slower pace of life in her region and the ability to travel and study with other artists and friends.

Artist's Statement

Cyanotype with a contact printing frame allows me to experiment with the use of both positive and negative images made digitally from my DSLR or point and shoot camera. I'm enjoying the handmade process.
