The Renaissance Vixen
The official home page of Lenora Rose
no, it's not really feasible to be a writer, but so what? Who says I
have to be feasible?"
I'm a Winnipeg born writer and artist, living with my fiancé Colin, and two cats.
Colin got me a domain back at our second anniversary. I'm not an HTML person by any means, so this is a standby page. I have rather more ambitious plans, but this will have to do for the nonce. Give me time.
Or better, give me advice. I'm working with Dreamweaver, on a 15" screen, and the only browser I have is IE (I know I should change that.) So if I missed anything obvious, or it just looks awful in your browser, let me know, especially if you can suggest a fix.
Below is the interesting stuff, or so I think: the first samples of my writing and my art.
This picture is about 5 years old, but I figured it was accurate enough....
I write periodic reviews for Green Man, a folklore and folk-tale based site. I've covered music, film and books, in reviews both good and bad, and sometimes where even I'm not sure.
I'll have a full thumbnail gallery up later, and mucho pretty pottery, and smaller versions of some of the overlarge current images. But in the meantime, here's some older work:
This is a weird self portrait.
I have a fascination with selkies.
This sketch was loosely inspired by Robin McKinley's Rose Daughter.
The original of this picture, called Familiar, was sold at a Science Fiction Convention art show some years ago. If the original purchaser is out there, please contact me!
And last and probably least, this is a costume I did, a fairy very loosely based on a Renaissance gown. Yes, that's me somewhere beneath. (Photo by Wayne Morris)
