about this project

I am studying the Diploma Of Tapestry with Warrnambool TAFE via correspondence.

I am also part of the Goth / Deathrock scene, co-hosting Shadowplay and hosting Cannibal Roses radio shows on Cathedral 13.

In 2012 I became interested in creating a series of woven tapestries based on the Goth / Deathrock subcultures.  I usually concentrate on the main part of these subcultures, which is the music.  But of course the aesthetic values that have followed the music are still visually dramatic and beautiful, and lend themselves perfectly to the timeless and time-consuming art of tapestry weaving.

Rather than upsetting people over copyright issues, I decided to compile my own library of images to use during my studies and beyond.
