WHOLESALE ENQUIRIES

I am happy to consider wholesale opportunites - please convo me for details. A minimuum order is requred dependant on which items you may be interesteed in.

BIOGRAPHY
I am a freelance costume designer and artist based in Nottingham, UK, originally from Scotland. I graduated in July 2005 as a mature student with a degree in Performance Costume and I have since been finding my own path which has led me to wonderful and unexpected places.
I am now able to focus much more on my artwork and accessories inbetween commissions and contract work, so please keep checking back for regular updates and additions to my shop.

MY INSPIRATIONS AND IDEAS
I am dedicated to expressing my interests and obsessions in order to form beautifully textured and hopefully unique interpretations within my work, whether that be my artwork, accesories or indeed my costumes.

My influences are many and varied, however I love to develop conceptual ideas in particular working from nature, history and archaeology, all things ancient and textured. Angels, marionettes and the baroque feature heavily in my work. Inspired by photographers such as Floria Sigismondi, Joel Peter-Witkin, artists Leonard Baskin, poets such as Edgar Allen Poe and Sylvia Plath and visual work such as unique art dolls, puppets, textile artists, the list is endless!!

MY WORK
No 2 days are the same! As well as making corsets, costumes and leather armour, in my spare time I also love working with textiles, making accessories, leathercraft, knitting, crochet and drawing/illustrating. I am a bit of jack of all trades really and always open to explore new techniques and take up any challenges.

I am soon to be revamping my shop with my more original pieces such as wearable accessories influenced by my costume work, textiles and illustrations so keep checking back!!

SELLING INFO

~ I am open to commissions and if you require/desire a custom made corset to your own measurements I am happy to take orders and sizes to come up with a perfect fit.
~ Also if you like any of my work but would like a variation of it (colour, scale etc) then I would be delighted to come up with the perfect item for you.
~ I only use quality materials and take great care and give attention to detail to each item, however if you are not happy with any item, let me know as soon as possible so that we can work through an arrangement in order that we can all be happy!!
~ I do ship internationally and am happy to combine shipping for multiple items. If you would like insurance or shipping confirmation, just let me know via a convo and I will send an updated invoice. All UK orders will be shipped first class and international airmail unless otherwise requested.

PAYMENT

~ I much prefer paypal for all transactions, however will accept cheques or postal orders from the UK.
~ I will only accept international cheque under certain circumstances and it is with the understanding that buyer pays the additional $10 fee I am charged for putting a cheque into my account. International cheques can take up to a month to clear and under no circumstances will any items be mailed out until all funds are cleared in my account. It is for this reason that paypal is my prefered option for convenience to myself and buyer.
