They faded from this land long ago. Kings and Queens of old, silver tongued warrior poets from far across the sea. They were driven deep, deep underground, where they built many pillared brughs and lay their dead to rest in dark barrows of rocky soil and moldering stones. Ages passed, and they were all but forgotten outside of snatches of song and myth as they slept beneath the heather. The people of the highlands avoided the ancient burial mounds and sithiens, for old women whispered of nights when the dead would awaken and rise from their cold grassy tombs, wandering the fells in darkness and hunger.
Amelia Royce Leonards is a graduate of Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, where she spent four years baffling her peers and professors with drawings of goddesses and antlered women. Her work is influenced by the beauty of ancient myth, folklore, and the natural world around us. She can usually be found somewhere deep in the woods, sketching odd creatures and eating chocolate chips.
