I'm Lady Suzanne de la Ferté of Stargate/Westgate (Katy, TX, just west of
Houston). I currently hold two thistles - one in calligraphy and illumination,
the other in cooking.  I am apprenticed to two wonderful laurels -- Master Geof
Cathan and Mistress Rose Cathan.  I run two guilds here in Stargate -- a
tapestry painting guild and a charter painting guild.

I've dabbled in artwork all my life, but didn't study any historical forms
until I joined the SCA (I'm self-taught).  Once Stargate's Yule Revel rolls
around this year, I will have been in the SCA for five years.  I love working
with both calligraphy and illumination.  My long term project is to complete a
illuminated manuscript of 'The Romance of the Rose'.  I'm currently finishing
up an award scroll for a barony in another kingdom.  It's in a celtic/norse
style (think Beowulf format).

I'm also planning my wedding right now -- to be held in May of next year at
Falkenstein Castle (just northwest of Austin, Texas).  Yup, that's right, a
*real* castle here in Texas!  It's built from King Ludwig of Austria's plans
(you remember, the guy who built Neuschwanstein -- the "Disney Castle") for a
second castle that he never got a chance to build himself.

Looking forward to hearing from all of you!
