The Art World
Flit around the globe on gossamer wings with Wendy Gold's whimsical world. Festooned with artful flocks of hand-cut butterflies, each one-of-a-kind piece is made from perfectly weathered, vintage globes.
Traveling near and far to find just-right globes, Gold artfully uses the world as her stage--or rather, her canvas. Using decoupage and paper cutting techniques, she carefully overlays butterflies of all shapes and shades to create a stunning piece of whimsical geography. The result transforms a familiar object into an object of pure imagination. Coated with a protective finish. Handmade in San Francisco.
Due to the handmade nature of this item, each globe and stand is one of a kind and will vary.

- the maker
Wendy Gold is an artist inspired by unique and unusual canvases. She first gained notoriety when she began decoupaging one-of-a-kind toilet seats and bathroom scales. Her work was instantly recognized for its originality and she quickly garnered a clientele including many A-list celebrities, along with a who's who of retailers, restaurants, hotels, interior designers, and home decor enthusiasts.
Always looking for new inspiration, she stumbled across a beautiful antique globe at a flea market and immediately recognized her next canvas. In early 2010, she launched ImagineNations™ and brought her unique brand of design to the canvas of world globes. By using recycled materials and vintage globes, she creates beautiful works of art, and brings a new touch of earthly responsibility to her work.
Wendy has built upon her ImagineNations™ brand by offering a line of recycled, hand-signed and numbered lithographs featuring her designs interplaying with vintage world maps.
Wendy has been featured on CNN, NPR, Newsweek, USA Today, InStyle, Travel+Leisure, and hundreds of other local, national and international media outlets. She has also appeared on the TV show, "I've Got a Secret." When not in her Bay Area studio, Wendy enjoys doing art projects with her daughter, scouring local flea markets, drinking green smoothies, kick boxing, and putting her artistic touch to good use at home and wherever she goes. collection
