Embroidery with Attitude


There is nothing courtly about Screaming Lulu's embroidery....Check it out:


A scowling Susan Boyle


Curse words...




It's the juxtaposition of prim and irreverent. I love it.

"I am a textile artist who loves to work with stitch and thread, producing 'stitchures' - images and text that have a narrative," Ms. Lulu explains. "I like to use humour in my work and I hope that you too will be amused whilst also seeing the serious message which I am trying to convey."

You can find her {here}.
