Artist of the Week: The Sacred Oak

The Sacred Oak, she makes me want to go to the Ren faire. Items made for the lords, and for the ladys. From the body to the bath.

When did you start making your goodies?
I started about 10 years ago. I was a lonely seamstress apprentice mostly self tough. The other part I learned in Theater in the Costuming Department. I learned all kinds of prop making and set designing. from there I went to books and online references. When I joined Amtgard my skills became a demand but no one wanted to help pay for it. Amptgard is the padded version of SCA with fantasy flair. We no longer play due to our children and how our local chapter is but in the whole Amtgard is okay.

Where can people buy your stuff? Mostly from my main website, I am on Etsy and Artfire as well. Our OOAK (One Of A Kind) items can be found on Etsy or Artfire. Things we make in duplicates and multiple size's or colors can be found on our main website.
Every First Saturday you can Find The Sacred Oak at Freedom Hill Trade Day just outside of Lufkin Texas (East Texas that is lol).

Lastly what are your plans for the future? To Open a in Person shop again, as well as start up A Ren Fair and A Gothic/Steam punk Fair. I think these types are a dying bread and deserve to be in the spot light. We have dying Arts and Sciences due to advancement of modern society. And for the most part are shunned or over looked. The Alternative world is a major part of our culture and yet is still placed in the darkness and made fun of. I believe its not fair to treat such talents on such a manner.

Any thing you want to add?
That anyone can accomplish anything with Work, Patience, and Determination. In the end it is up to you if you are successful.
