I have been blessed to gild the holy palki that houses the Shri Guru Granth Sahib, which is the sacred text and central teacher of Sikhism.

For two weeks I was warmly hosted by the Sikh congregation at this active temple where I worked accompanied by perpetual Punjabi raga and devotional prayer.

Required to cover my head I felt like
I stepped into my artistic self garnered in a turban. I restored and gilded the four pillars of the palki,
 I feel most uplifted from my experience at the Gurdwara,
Thanks to everyone for making me feel so welcome.


Wahe Guru!!

Eva Hall - Florest

Haywards Heath, UK.


Inspired by 18th century chinoiserie Eva's home living room wall was transformed from damaged and dusty into a magnificent golden wall with a magnolia tree, white eye birds and a gerbil. Designed alongside Eva and her whole family to incorporate their favourite flora and fauna and to match the colours of their existing interiors

I was looking for something new for our home, then I came across Rachael! In the planning stage she was consistent in communication and replied promptly. I saw I was going to enjoy and be engaged with this project. For a whole week it added a creative inspirational flow into our daily life as we watched it grow. As a florist and a gardener I seek for beauty of many forms and shapes. The whole process was comfortable, relaxing and engaging. I have more than I expected in terms of cosiness and homeliness. My family and friends enjoy and often make very complimentary comments about Rachael's work. When alone, I very much appreciate the time I can spend just sitting down in my home contemplating this work. At any time of day or night it reflects light in constantly changing shades. Its also a perfect backdrop for the photography of my flower arrangements.

- Rachael has a wonderfully sensitive and sympathetic approach to her commissions. As an artist herself she imbues her gilding with imagination and flare; her work on my paintings added hugely to the final result. Professional at all times with a great sense of humour, she is a delight to work with. 'I have been incorporating gold - usually associated with works of the high renaissance and those with religious iconography - in pictures with a wry or humorous centre. It adds a richness and extravagant opulence to unexpected subject matter, deifying the everyday.'
