The Webmistress


I am the Webmistress, Lady Gwendolen, painter of parallel worlds and alternate dimensions. I hope this website enchants and informs you.

Ok, in reality, I'm Traci Cleaver and (since 1985) the wife of Sam Bliden. I am artsy and creative and I like belly dance, world music/art/cuisine, arts and crafts, cats, Tolkien, mythology, STOS, and 99.9% of all manifestations of flora and fauna.

My photo 

I'm a visual person, often expressing my feelings through color when I create visual art and also when I do creative writing. I like to experiment with patterns and color combinations. Not all of the images on this website were created by me. The lower half of a webpage contains the credits to their sources. Images created by me are given no credit, although I may mention where I downloaded the freeware font, image, or PSP (Paint Shop Pro) tool that was graphically altered to create some of them. Unless I state otherwise, please do not download them for your own use, whether personal or commercial; they are a part of the design and feel of this website.

Links for art, graphics, and webpage design.

Square graphic using a quote by Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677): "Peace is not an absence of war, it is a virtue, a state of mind, a disposition for benevolence, confidence, justice." Quote surrounds a nebula-like triskelion on a starry, ultra-violet/cobalt-blue background.
