Lo! Calamity: making a mess with thread and paper

I'm Henry, a 20-something year old autistic writer and artist.
I have been a self-taught embroiderer since mid-2016, a collage artist since 2018, and a hoarder of scraps of paper all my life.

My work is often inspired by cabinets of curiosity, maximalism, and spooky motifs.
I like interior design, taxidermy, vampires, cold weather, and the colour pink.
I like cats, bats, birds, and snakes.
My favourite artist is Magritte.
My favourite place is home.

"a human bower bird" - my best friend, on me.
