This artwork was inspired by the beloved Bronte sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne. Together they took literary conventions of the Victorian period and radically reshaped them, pushing back at the limits of the world. These subversive sisters' stories transcend their time and still resonate with modern audiences of all ages. Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë were sisters of great literary skill whose works have become well-loved classics. Their insightful novels explore the intricacy of human nature and the effect one person can have on others. They showed readers both the light and the dark present in human nature. They explore the balance needed through their characters, allowing readers to learn about their own nature through the experience of others, encompassing some of the most exquisite examples of the beauty, strength, wonder and depth of the human spirit.

Portrait Of The Three Sisters was created by constructing a hand-cut collage of female photographic portraiture and photograms from an antique microscopic slide of TB cells and moss from the Yorkshire Moors, combined with surface textures of chemigrams. After coating the handmade paper with light-sensitive chemistry, it is left to dry in a dark room. The large-scale negative is contact printed onto the paper by exposure to daylight (UV rays). The print is then processed by thoroughly washing in water to remove any unexposed solution. It can then be hung to dry, developing to full density Prussian blue after 24 hours.
