Introduction

I joined the SCA in 2000, in the Kingdom of Artemisia, residing in the then Shire of Gryphons Lair and gained an authorization in rapier in 2000. I started attending rapier practice and events again in 2004 after a break from the SCA for fours years having moved to the Kingdom of Atlantia. I attended my first Pennsic in 2005 and started my archery career shortly after. Archery, Service to Archery defined much of my SCA career, outside of my Barony of Stierbach Officer duties as Archery Marshal, Exchequer and then Seneschal. I changed from shooting a recurve bow and longbow to shooting a crossbow in 2010 after having to have rotator cuff surgery. My only claim to fame might be the fact that I was the first woman Grand Bowman Elite, in the Kingdom of Atlantia, achieving a Royal Round Score of 102.6 in Sept 2010. I started as a Baronial Scribe in 2011 using gouache and a dip nib pen, eventually starting to make Kingdom scrolls as well. I continued to make scrolls, though less scrolls while I was landed Baroness of the Barony of Stierbach, Kingdom of Atlantia starting in June of 2012. I switched to almost exclusive pen and ink scrolls in 2013 and using period exemplars to make reproduction images of woodcuts, engraving, etchings and drawings. I served as landed Baroness of the Barony of Stierbach until June of 2017. I continue to shoot my crossbow, maintaining scores in the Grand Bowmen Elite, Royal Round Rank and and have significantly increased the amount of scrolls produced since stepping down as landed Baroness of Barony of Stierbach. I continue to serve my Kingdom, my Barony and my Canton and currently host the Canton of Sudentorre Scribal Scriptorium at my home with Valgard av Mors.
