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 due to the fact they are often placed on reserve before I have had a chance to finish making them. Please do enquire though if you see something you like as I try to be fair to customers by spreading availability to clients. Dolls are often sold on Etsy but many are purchased via private invoice.
How much are your dolls, prints and illustrations?
Figuring out prices can be quite challenging. My dolls are all unique one off pieces, I don't create templates as I prefer to just draw straight on to my fabric and I also stitch each piece entirely by hand, this isn't because I don't have a sewing machine - I just enjoy the process of hand stitching.
Prints are generally 6x8 or 10x8 and are professionally printed.
I sometimes sell my original art work.
Dolls - between £150 - £300
Prints - £16.50 - £23.00
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.
