Trobairitz & then some 


And pleased to make your acquaintance! I am Lavinia Valeriana. A Warwickshire-born and based Latin European/Celt solo DIY Bardic Avant-Gardist. A self-taught/effacing Performance poet and multi-instrumentalist. I prefer exploration and learning as an abstruse and especially attention-shy Gothic-soul publishing from home in an easy-going fashion, with a disinterest in careerism/the mainstream. 

Often spontaneous, intentionally aged [Lo-fi] audio with an antiqued/vintage aesthetic and a quirk for keening. All poetry/instrumental music written, performed, mixed/mastered [except those in real-time], and composed by me unless I state otherwise.

I release limited edition artworks and books (at my little exclusive Atelier) now-and-then — expressions of heritage, love, death, mourning and darkly whimsy. Simply happy to invent and share with all and embrace all who do me.

I've penned unconventional poems, strummed a mandolin and plucked a harpsichord since age six. Less importantly, I am completely deaf in my right ear — let's get further acquainted. I'd (genuinely) be delighted, and you'll learn more about me as we go.

I have blogs, but they're also casual affairs — preferring to be consumed by creativity and productivity. At the time of my latest release, In a Chamber of Ruin, I decided to take a digital hiatus. So, I am away but actively creating! Until my return, please do come feast upon the Psilocybin Mushrooms of my polymathy.
