About Studio Tempest

"Passion has little to do with euphoria and everything to do with patience." Mark Z Danielewski - House of Leaves

Honestly, it all started because of anxiety. I have had extreme issues with anxiety since childhood, and struggle to find things to do with my hands that I find monotonous in a good way. I decided to try cross stitch, and in proper Gianna fashion, I bought one small kit, did half of it, and then took on an 11x14 birthday gift for someone I was seeing.

Nearly 100 hours later, he received a mostly finished (to me) gift that he adored, and I was absorbed into what has eventually become Studio Tempest.

Every stitch is embroidered by hand, and as of 2021, this stitchery has grown from creating on a couch, trying to keep my cats out of my thread to a studio space in Seattle, WA. Visits are available to local folks (post-covid / with proof of full vaccination effectivity after June 1). I spend roughly 20-40 hours a week at the Studio, working on all sorts of projects, and am always trying new things. My work is inspired by podcasts I'm listening to, memes, the weird things in my own head, movies, tv shows, and of course, my love of TTRPGs.

My greatest thanks go to everyone who has supported me along this ridiculous journey. Between the amazing people that have shopped with me at vending events, my close circle of friends, and my spouse, this journey has been humbling and wonderful.

Thank you so much, and welcome to the Studio.
