Meet the Artist

Little bit of background info!

Trained in both fine art and costume design, Gwendolyn has been combining her passions for historical costume, drawing and painting for over a decade.

In 2009 she obtained her BFA in Illustration, and then worked as a costume technician and historical interpreter at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation for several years before heading to off to grad school. An MFA in Performance Costume from the University of Edinburgh then followed in 2015.

After working as a draper for various theatres in the Chicago area, Gwendolyn has now settled in Arizona and is rediscovering her love of painting and sewing under the marvellous desert sky.
