I design and make gothic garments & accessories inspired by nature, surreal and fairytale elements. I also collect and lovingly restore antique pieces, mainly Edwardian and Victorian mourning clothing and these are a huge influence on my work. In fact, many of my creations are made from upcycled vintage fabrics and trimmings and can be found in my online Etsy shop 'Fallen Masques'. I have also held several art exhibitions under the name 'Fallen Art' as part of the heritage weekend events in Coventry. I am looking forward to hosting these again, when the restrictions allow, to give local artists & makers the opportunity to exhibit their work in unique, historical settings. Coventry has a rich history of making, with the ribbon industry and watch making and it's fantastic to see it buzzing as a hive of creativity again!
