Illuminations and miniatures, 100% painted in France!

I am Nancy, in my forties, and I tried painting illuminations for the first time back in 1999.

I had a rather bad start, with very few supplies and a book, using acrylic gesso as a base for gilding : what a mess! So I put aside my brushes for a while, until I took a class in 2006 with Claire Travers, who taught me some medieval techniques and recipes : goat parchment, genuine pigments, and gold leaves.

An illness (or I should say: its heavy medication) made my hands shaky and prevented me from painting for a few years. Today, I slowly recover both gestures and feelings that were mine ten years ago.

    I guess I was a monk in a scriptorium in another life, who knows?
