Lilias Trotter studied art under John Ruskin and was a contemporary of Charlotte Mason. It’s unknown if their paths ever crossed as Lilias left London in 1888 for Northern Africa, remaining there until her death in 1928.

In these four decades, Lilias filled 30 diaries with her breathtaking watercolors and words—all while writing devotionals and leaflets in Arabic. She even formed a relationship of respect with Sufi Mystics, for whom she wrote and illustrated The Sevenfold Secret based on the Gospel of John.

If you’d like to learn more about Lilias, see pages from her diaries, read her reflections, or watch a documentary on her fascinating faith-filled life, visit the Lilias Trotter Legacy.
