I am fascinated by vibrant colours, light and iridescence. My work reflects this by marrying the ancient art of gilding with modern technology, materials and methodology to create striking decorative artworks. Research for my degree in Restoration and Decorative Studies, involved developing a process to produce a versatile material that features the colours and forms of nature and has many decorative applications. I'm not aware of any other artist specialising in this particular technique. My work contains elements of gilding, decorative paint finishes, digital photography, sable work and marquetry.
