I carry out various commissions related to the written word and medieval manuscript painting. It is often a word combined with decoration—calligraphy and illumination.
The word iluminare comes from the Latin lux, that is ‘light’. To illuminate a word, sentence or text means to extract it from the shadows, to lighten it up. In the Middle Ages, the decorator and illustrator of a codex was called the illuminator, that is, the one who by the means of colours brings light to, or brings out the meaning of the decorated words.
The works can be done on paper or parchment (which is the noblest and most durable material for this technique). The price depends on the chosen format, length of text, details of the painting decoration, and the type of materials used. It is possible to send works abroad.
COPIES OF MANUSCRIPT CARDS AND MINIATURES
As a specialist in miniature painting, I can make a copy of any miniature from a manuscript codex, illuminated card, or calligraphic text. I work on parchment using techniques developed by medieval scribes and illuminators.”
Many of the works I do are gifts for important events. Such gifts are sought by people who want a beautiful, original, hand-made item. A miniature or a document is a work of art. These are usually gifts for christenings, first holy communions, weddings, first masses, birthdays, anniversaries, or jubilees. They can also be acknowledgements, book plates, and maxims. The works are made in different sizes, on paper or parchment, richly decorated and housed in a beautiful frame.
DOCUMENTS, STATUTES, FILES, CHRONICLES
I prepare various types of documents related to the consecration of a new church or altar, certificates confirming the consecration of corner stones, foundation acts, documents commemorating particularly solemn events, e.g. the launch of cooperation, important meetings of political, social or cultural importance.
HANDWRITTEN DOCTORAL AND POST-DOCTORAL DIPLOMAS
For university institutions, I make diplomas signifying the attainment of a doctorate degree, habilitation and other titles.

The technique I work with is precise and time-consuming. Please keep this in mind when planning your order, because it often takes many days to make a miniature.back
