Featured Artist : Stevie Varin |
My Name is Stevie Varin, but in the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) I am known as Viscountess Sof’ia Stepanova doch’. I’ve been an artist as long as I can remember, but the SCA has been my muse for the last 6 years or so. It is a non-profit group that researches, teaches, and plays in pre-17th century history.
Many people in the SCA make silk banners to show their heraldry during tournaments. While I definitely enjoy painting heraldry, I love painting scenes, so I began creating more artistic silk banners that depict a landscape or traditional scene, and even banners that tell a story like the Bayeux Tapestry.
