World Goth Day - Adele Mildred

    1. In your own words, who are you and what do you do? 

      Hello! I am a multi disciplinary artist and designer. I am currently focusing my attentions on the head (hats and sunglasses) and painting (my personal art and illustrator for hire). I have a tendency to veer towards the weird and dark but I like to keep it feminine. Goth, but stick a flower on it. 

    2. How would you describe your style in 3 words?

      Witchy 'art teacher’

    3. What do you think being goth means today? 

      I have NO IDEA about today! I was goth before Marilyn Manson was even a thing. I’m a purist and to me it was about being a sensitive human, and that hurts... so you wear it on your sleeve. (Your lacey billowy sleeve, in the cemetery listening to Bauhaus.)

    4. Who/what are some of your influences and inspirations? 
      All the strong weird women that have broken the mold;
      Ganna Walska
      Beatrice Wood
      Ray Suzan Strauss/ the Lava Lady
      Luisa Casati
      Elsa Schiaparelli
      Ethel Granger
      Rosaleen Norton
      Marjorie Cameron

    6. What have you been listening to recently?
      Song I have on repeat right now:
      Season of the Witch, Donovan
      Crimson and Clover Tommy James and the Shondells
      Funnel of Love, Wanda Jackson
      This is the Day, The The

      I never  really listen to contemporary music and am really proud my kids can hear a David Bowie song and call it out.
