SCA Bio:

I was handed a Knowne World Handbook and a stack of Tournaments Illuminated which I spent a week reading in September 1990 and became a member.Went to my first event at Shadowed Stars within the month and have been doing it ever since.I already had a background in calligraphy and art and what I do today is what I wanted to do back in 1990, I just had to learn how and learn the medieval ways of art.
