Connecticut based embroidery artist Alaina Varrone is a keen observer of her surroundings. The characters she depicts in her work are those that go ignored — written off.
Varrone’s needle work acts as a camera, capturing her experiences and all she sees — the fun, the humor. The strange and the sexual. She frames party girls into the fabric of folk art, caught in their everyday life.
There’s a love in her portraits, a desire to play along and be a part of it all. Always a brave artist, Varrone is unguarded and raw, willing to let her personality and beliefs be seen by the audience.
