The art and design of Gretchen Burneko

Greeting Cards

 

Medieval Illumination is close to my heart. I am lucky enough to live near the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, CA, where there is a world class exhibit on Medieval illumination. I am always excited when the museum to announces that they will soon turning a page in one of their amazing illustrated tomes! Historical re-creationists put enormous energy into making accurate illuminations. I use some of the techniques of the middle ages along with my modern sensibilities to create these greeting cards.
