I am a self-taught artist, seamstress, writer, and teacher, specializing in realistic artwork, minimalist artwork, Celtic knotwork, calligraphy, corsetry, costuming, and embroidery.
These designs are all based on 16th and 17th century freehand blackwork embroidery, found on extant items and in period portraits. They are created to be used as pre-printed patterns for embroidering, or as-is for costuming, clothing, accessories, home decorating, or anything else you can think of.
