Alice Cescatti grew up in New Zealand and studied Fine Arts at the Ilam School of Art in New Zealand. Mentored by renowned New Zealand artists such as Doris Lusk, Glenn Bush and Quentin McFarlane.


Moving to London to study Interior Design along with a four year apprenticeship with Rupert Bevan on Restoration of Gilded & Painted Furniture. Alice also devoted several years to teaching painting and gilding techniques in Vietnam working for an international furniture company and later working as a much demanded freelance gilder in Europe.


Alice Cescatt had her first solo exhibition of gilded paintings in 2004 at the Galerie Christian Siret,Palais Royal, Paris.

Her unique technique involves a rarely seen water-gilding process with which Alice has mastered different ways of describing light.

The water-gilding process is more complex than oil gilding,which involves building up many layers of sanded gesso and clay on wooden panels. This is followed by floating individual silver or gold leaves onto the clay surface using a specialist method dating back to Egyptian tomb paintings and reliefs from the 23rd century BC, some of the earliest evidence of gold being beaten into leaf. The gold or silver leaf surface is then hand burnished with an agate stone to enhance the quality of the metal as a light source.
