Maestra Antonia is a 14th century Italian court artist, who spent a year at the Papal Court in Avignon before returning to Siena in disgust at the sordid corruption of the court. She has twice served as a royal artisan to the Crown of Lochac, and is currently seeking a wealthy patron who will generously support her work in panel painting, production of official court documents, poetry, and creating spectacular entertainments such as feast subtleties, fire effects and ingenious mechanical devices. Meanwhile she experiments with the latest chemical and mechanical technology of the age.
Antonia is currently also the Dean of the Painters and Limners Guild of Lochac, and the Barony of Stormhold Arts and Sciences Officer.
On her website you will find her blog plus project documentation and workshop notes to download, with links to an online album containing pictures of her work.
