Welcome to the Illuminated Letter.
My name is Judy Haron. I now live and work out of my studio home in Laguna Beach California. I have been an artist all my life. I grew up in Denver Colorado. My educational and art foundational background was formed in Illustration,textile design in New York City.
My work centers on nature’s Endangered or threatened Species, flora,and fauna of our planets Coasts and water ways. Materials and inspiration in my work come from the richly based historical period during the Medieval to Early Renaissance manuscripts of the 13th to 15th century . Primarily egg tempera paints, gold leaf, and parchment papers are used in my pieces as well as decorative elements.Calligraphy and raised 23kt gold letters are incorporated with embellished illuminated letters in both my wildlife illuminations and celebration certificates.
I am also happy to provide custom-designed illuminations for those looking for a one-of-a-kind gifts or to commemorate special events. I will work with you to create personalized illuminated manuscripts,illuminated letters,wedding vows birth certificates, wedding certificates, family crests, and family trees.
