Amelia Roché Roland Hyde's grandmother started her out young. Their hangouts included ice cream and watercolors while Papa Nathan played the piano, his tunes swelling throughout their big, wooden house. When Amelia got older, it suddenly dawned on her that she was living in a swampland full of bright and true color. The people were polite and the landscape was surreal and sticky. As Amelia's husband likes to say, "Living in the South is like living inside a giant's mouth." Ain't that the truth. Here, the past was alive, and could be met at any street corner. This imbedded in Amelia a deep passion for history, its art, and its implications.
Forgotten memories, discarded photographs, a faraway place. A thing you think you remember, but can't grasp hold of. These are the inspirations for Amelia's opus.
Amelia is an art historian, photographer, writer, and dabbler in painting with an M.A. in medieval art history. She seeks to create relevant platforms for medieval art to be discussed, displayed and enjoyed. Visit her blog to see new film photos or to delve into the artistic landscape of the Middle Ages.
After a year in London, Amelia now lives with her husband, Zac, and their cat, Heloise, in the sultry lands of South Carolina. Heloise, also known as Weezy, is Amelia's forever muse.
