In this series, Indigo, I chose the deep and ancient blue as the backdrop for my archipelago images. This color  has a rich history as an organic compound which which was prized in ancient civilizations as a dye used in  textiles and printing dating back from India and  Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. In this series I have also introduced the use of genuine silver leaf, 23 k Italian gold leaf, and French India inks.
