Johanna Aenderl Ryan is an emerging artist working primarily with cyanotype (a.k.a. blueprints/sun prints), monotypes, weaving, and embroidery. She approaches creating with fervor in exploring materials. While her materials might evolve, nature is always the inspiration for her work. She uses her artistic practice to reflect and strengthening her relationship with the natural world; using found materials (natural dyes, food scraps) or natural process (sunlight) to create the work.  Her work holds close what is undervalued in our culture: nature, making by hand, ‘women’s work’/the domestic, not buying unnecessary materials.
