A LITTLE ABOUT ME...
I am a graduate of Kingston School of Art ( Kingston University) and was educated at Sandroyd School and Bedales.
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember (probably from the time I could hold a pencil) and have been developing and refining my style over the years.
I am interested in history, which has led to my involvement in re-enactment. I continue to study the Hundred Years War, the Wars of the Roses and the Waterloo Campaign, as I have learned that there is always more to know .
I make my own costume for re-enactment and for other periods that interest me. I go to Science Fiction conventions and have often entered costume in masquerades (as well as just wearing it as hall costume). I was awarded Best in Class (Journeyman) for my costume 'Dastardly in Motley' at the Glasgow Worldcon in 2005.
I took part in the masquarades at the Dublin Worldon in 2019 in the Master ( now sometimes called Open) catergory. Our set ( Group Green ) was awarded best Workmanship.
I have studied heraldry for many years and served as the senior herald for the Far Isles Medieval Society until 2014.
