practicing some knotwork. medieval art and calligraphy saved my sanity in Scotland when I dropped out of my academic degree at the University of Edinburgh. . .I was sort of lost and God steered me back into art (really my first love) via a fascination with medieval manuscripts, which were not hard to come across over there. That led into learning about the Arts and Crafts philosophy, and then I realized I needed to learn iconography. I had been Orthodox for many years, and an artist even longer, but it took a lot to make me make the connection! Go figure.
