About the Event

In this course, you will learn the medieval techniques of manuscript painting and gold leafing on paper and how to produce

your own symbolic journey page in your book of life. ..or create one for a loved one.


My inspiration for the "homage" to the land of The Northwoods is my part-time home on Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin. The champagne clear lakes, and the flora and fauna of the region close to the Great Lakes beckons to me when summer arrives in New Orleans, but when the snows begin to fly, my heart also loves to return to the beauty of the bayous in Louisiana .

The AAW Illumination class was a perfect way to connect my love of painting to the exploration of illustration and use of gold leaf. I hope to illuminate a small children’s book someday and to carry on a historic tradition that elevates written words and images into miniature masterpieces. AAW and Lyn Taylor set a new direction for my creative ambition for which I am most grateful.
