Mixed Media Collage
The Illuminated Page ongoing series series reflects C. Sullivan's interest in ancient illuminated manuscripts, one of the earliest forms of bookbinding and illustration. Sullivan creates patterns which are transferred to an antique book page. Watercolor, gouache and gold leaf are then applied to create a gemlike painting that celebrates antiquity, pattern and color.
