Lady Griete van Groningen

Lady Griete van Groningen (Yvonne Gwyn) is from the Netherlands in the 16th century.

I've been involved in re-enactment since joining the Wellington Medieval Guild in 2004, and joined the Barony of Ildhafn about 5 years ago.  Since then I've spent some time living in the Kingdom of Ealdormere (Toronto) before returning to the Barony in 2019.

My particular interests at the moment include:

  • painting, particularly portraiture. Mostly oil painting, though I have tried egg tempera.
  • illumination - I'm just diping my toes into the scribal arts of Lochac.
  • music - a long term project is learning to play the viol.
  • singing - I especially enjoy part singing.
  • wood carving is also something I have had a go at and would like to learn more about in future.  Particularly polychrome sculpture.

If you're interested in painting or scribal arts, or any of the above, please get in touch!
