Celebrating Renaissance Books and Book Art

Ever since I was a child, my two great loves have been painting and books. Not just reading---although reading is wonderful!---but also books as objects, to see, to hold, to smell, to caress. After I discovered the illuminated manuscripts of the Middle Ages and Renaissance through my involvement with a medieval history group, I studied all three traditional book arts---calligraphy, illumination, and binding---and have taught these skills to members of living history and reenactment groups. I use authentic techniques and materials for most of my work, including 23K gold leaf and animal skin parchment. My family and I travel the country to our booths at several large renaissance faires, and I continue to teach workshops and classes.

In addition, I also create modern artwork for signs, stickers, and decals. Those items are available in my second shop, Signs of Other Times.
