The Gilded Image

In another life, Bev has been painting in her studio, The Gilded Image, since 1996, specialising in medieval-style images with gilded backgrounds, inspired by the beauty of gold-leaf and the luminous colours in medieval paintings. She is passionate about creating and recreating images from medieval life in general, archangels and angels in particular.

You can also browse through Bev’s non-maths photograph collections with favourite images from across the world.
