I don't remember when I first met Mistress Nataliia, but she's an unforgettable figure in the Rapier and Scribal communities of the East Kingdom. While I don't recall when or how we first met (probably in the Rapier lists) I recall being quite intimidated as she attended a calligraphy class of mine held a few years ago during a Great Northeastern War in Malagentia. Partly this was because of my memory of the lovely and long Order of the Golden Rapier scroll she made for Jean du Montagne. More recently she's been experimenting with making her own period-style paintbrushes and testing them.
She's one of the many people who inspired me to try this whole scribal thing out. Thanks Nataliia!
