Welcome to Heian Haven. I’m Dawn.

This webpage is dedicated to the history, literature, clothing and culture of Heian Era Japan – it’s a haven for my special interests and pet research projects, a place where I can share what I learn and what I make with the world, and a companion to my YouTube Channel, Heian Haven.

I’m a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism where I portray a Heian noblewoman, Sugawara no Naeme. The garments and items I create are to enhance my interpretation.

In the world outside the internet I’m a theater professional and accomplished home chef. I fight anxiety and other challenges, sometimes with a sense of humor.
