“Living around the world greatly influenced my art and am drawn to unusual mediums and techniques. My passion these days lies with gold, copper and silver leaf in composite and pure forms, in combination with oil paint. It’s a technique that has taken me a number of years to perfect, especially the pagination process of the various metal leaves.”~ Inge Dagmar Manders
