Where and how can I buy your work and how can I contact you?
Please contact me via my Etsy shop where possible. You can also Direct Message me from Instagram.
I sell a good selection of prints in my shop, which often come and go depending on how popular they are. My dolls can sometimes be a little more tricky to purchase as they sell super speedy once listed. I will announce listing times via my Instagram feed. I cannot always please everyone in the way that I sell my work but please be patient, I'm sure you will manage to hook one eventually. I don't currently offer reserves dolls.
How much are your dolls, prints and illustrations?
My dolls are all unique one off pieces. Unless I am making small collections (ie Christmas Fairies) I generally don't even create templates as I prefer to just draw straight on to my fabric. I also carefully hand stitch each doll by hand - this isn't because I don't own a sewing machine, I just enjoy the process of hand stitching.
Prints are generally 6x8 or 10x8 and are professionally printed.
Prints - £16.50 - £23.00
Large Dolls - between £150 - £300
Small Dolls - between £90 - £120
I sometimes sell my original art work.
Do you take on custom orders or commissions?
I tend to cherry pick certain projects and don't currently tend to take on small orders but I do welcome inquiries for bigger commissions, collaborations and exhibitions.
Do you have any training?
I am a self taught designer/maker so with the exception of the odd illustration course I have taught myself completely. I wrote and illustrated stories about my dolls as a child as well as making them clothes. I guess I have just never really grown out of wanting to play dress up. I made my first simple little Pip doll to sell in 2011 and since then my work has constantly evolved.
Are your dolls suitable for children?
No they are not suitable for children or play due to their delicate construction.
