Introduction

I am Kataryn Mercer (pronounced Cat-uh-rin), called "Kit" by friends. I am a costumer by preference with an interest in recreating clothing worn in the 16th century, through both historically accurate or innovative methods. My primary passion is Italian costuming, and I dabble in painting potter, woodcuts, and embroidery.

Persona

Kataryn Mercer is the daughter of an English silk merchant and an Italian woman. She was born in 1535 in London, England. Though they are working class, her father's successful business allows Kataryn access to the finest silks from abroad, as well as the latest fashions, particularly from her mother's hometown, Florence. Recently, the Mercer family has relocated to Florence to improve business connections, and there they reside currently.
