About

Toni is the manuscript illuminator at Lincoln Cathedral and is one of the few professional illuminators in the UK. She specialises in the creation of illuminated pages and letters using 24 carat gold and pigments. Natural pigments are painstakingly ground by hand to colour traditional manuscripts whilst modern watercolours add vibrancy to contemporary work.
Commissions welcomed.
