About Me

My name is Bill Grandy, and I’m in love with history. Not just dates and facts, but the cultures and art of the past. Professionally, I am the Director of Historical Swordsmanship at the Virginia Academy of Fencing, where I recreate the martial arts passed on from medieval and Renaissance manuscripts. On the side, I create art and objects, usually inspired by the past, and with a particular interest in martial culture. I am also a collector of arms and armor, both antique and modern reproductions, and this passion influences my art.
