Susannah and James
Illuminations are best described as enlightenment. As one gazes upon an illuminated page, the meaning and spirit of texts and images literally light up one’s soul.
Gold invites light to accord significance in the eyes of the beholder, these magic moments often retain wonderment for eternity.
The various papers, skins, gold leaves, their mordant, pigments, shapes, styles, and most important of all: inspiration… all speaking from ages past, giving me the ability to shape the light I wish to convey, the life I wish to share.
