About Gothic Decay

I live in Swansea, UK, with a variable number of cats

My work is inspired by urban decay, forensic science, tattoos, industrial metal music and death (which is quite a typical list for the average embroiderer)

After starting with cross stitch kits in primary school, I moved to filling in shapes from stencils in different embroidery stitches. I studied a year of City and Guilds Embroidery in Swansea Collage and then moved to Ireland to become a professional embroiderer, that was in around 2000.

For most of my career, I was hand embroidering British birds, but it was time to let my inner goth out and stitch the things I love.
