Gilded Treasures. Gold leaf original wildlife paintings on oak.
Idiosyncratic Style Takes You into A World of Mesmerising Gilded Treasures. Hares wait under windswept trees, bees and hummingbirds feeding on heavy blossom. A silhouette of a fox on the horizon, big eyed owls watching. A continuing story of enchanting collectable artworks, all set against a gilded background. Each original piece is handmade by Sally in her studio on the remote Hebridean Isle of Mull using gold, copper and silver leaf and rice paper which makes them unique works of art to be cherished. Her work is only available on the island and a few select mainland galleries. Sally and her husband Graham have recently collaborated on their first book called Who do I belong with. Amber, a young hare, has been separated from her family. In her search to be reunited, she encounters wondrous wild creatures and learns some lessons in survival. The book is beautifully illustrated with twelve enchanting plates by Sally and written by Graham. See website for more details.
