Dirty Embroidery by Alaina Varrone

Words

Alaina Varrone is an embroidery artist from New Haven, Connecticut. As she tells us, she was born in 1982 to a family of weirdos and storytellers, she uses this natural creativity to tell her own stories in thread’. Alaina Varrone is influenced by history, culture, and the esoteric, with a focus on strong female characters. We especially love the contrast between the delicate technique and the rough subject.

Currently she’s working on a series based on the various girl gangs of mythology, set in the future, exploring how goddesses adapt through time within the backdrop of modern feminism.
