Theodora Salusbury

Theodora Salusbury Miss Theodora Salusbury (1875-1956) was by nature an artist and craftswoman in the Arts & Crafts style. After training with some of the best artists in the field, she worked as a stained glass artist at her studios in Cornwall and London. Her windows would be leaded up by Lowndes & Drury. Dating mostly from between the two World Wars, the windows were destined for nearly thirty churches in England and Wales, several of them in Leicestershire, her home county.

The impact of her windows comes through her use of brilliant colour and her skilled representation of the figures she portrayed. Most of her work bears her signature, a peacock.
