 Color & Gold LLC was founded by Bridgette K S. in 2017. Bridgette is a gilder, ornamental architectural painter, graphic designer & illuminator.

Museum-quality giclée prints of her exquisitely drawn & delicately gilded illuminations glow with bright archival inks on luxurious German Etching paper by Hahnemühle, who’s acid free papers have been prized by European nobility for centuries. She is excited to be making her line of illuminations available now or sale and new offerings will be made available by and by.

Adorning these prints with the splendor of hand-applied 24K gold or pure palladium leaf & often refining the gilt work with the colored pencils used in the originals, she fashions each illumination to be completely unique.

Reflected in her her luminouse designs is the tranquility of the Great Lakes, celebrated time lived abroad in Israel, Japan & China, the inspired artistry of late North American Bahá’í Temple architect, Louis Bourgeois, & the moss covered woods of the Pacific Northwest where she is from & received a BA in industrial design with honors from the Art Institute of Portland.

She is an active member of the Society of Gilders & her works are featured in the permanent collection at Museum of the Gilding Arts & in private collections world wide. Her elegant borders & graphic designs have been commissioned by art collectors, designers, publishers, event planners, private businesses & houses of worship.
