LAURA LAVENDER CALLIGRAPHY, ILLUSTRATION & DESIGN
Illuminated Letter B with blue roses

ILLUMINATION

In art, illumination is a method which adds incredible sparkle to illustrations and calligraphy, by decorating the page with gold or other precious metals.

Laura is enamored with illumination, as it adds so much brilliance to pieces, making the colours pop off the page.

The following pieces are all created with real 23kt gold leaf. They are all miniatures, being less than 4 inches tall.
