Announcement   Welcome to my Shop.

Watercolour Paintings:

All my prints are from own original paintings and printed on heavy duty specialist fine art paper. They are whimsical and dreamlike with either A4 or A3 sizes available. I also print on both matte and glossy finish papers.

Needle felting:

All of my needle felted work have been made with top quality wool roving and hand blended then sculptured by myself. All my work is OOAK (One of a kind) creations that you can't get anywhere else! I am proud of the fact that every one of them is authentic, unique and different.

***Please note: Most of my needle felted items have wire skeletons. Therefore, they are too fragile for children to play with. Ornamental only.****

I hope you find what you are looking for, if not then just message me and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Please read through my shop policies to help inform your decision of buying from my shop.

Enjoy looking around my store!

About

Where it all began

I grew up with pencil and paper in hand, always coloring and giving inanimate objects characters of their own.

I started my shop in 2009 while in my second year of studying art at university. I experimented with soft toys and textiles, which gained me the highest module score from my entire degree. I explored many different mediums but found textiles to be quite interesting and a fresh new challenge.

Admittedly there have been some very questionable creations along the way (that have never seen the light of day) All new designs come from trial and error so I can live with a few plush casualties stuffed at the back of my wardrobe.

I have more recently started selling my watercolour paintings. My work has developed into original and unique works of art that differ from the traditional style of working. I have gained quite a following and hope to gain more recognition for my painting skills as well as my textile work.

'Where did the puffer fish logo come from I hear you say?'
I am an avid fish keeper (as geeky as that sounds) I love anything that swims. So much so that I recently pursued Scuba diving with sharks, it was amazing.... Anyway, keeping on track of my logo explanation, the first oddball fish that I ever kept successfully were a pair of puffer fish called Mimi and Yoshi. They are both since long gone now. Rest in peace little fishies.

Shop policies

Last updated on November 7, 2015
My shop is run from the UK and I graduated with a Ba Hons Fine art degree from John Moores University in June 2010. My general philosophy is to provide a quality, original item with excellent customer service.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I only accept Paypal payment only at the moment. A Paypal account is easy and secure to set up. I try my best to ship and communicate immediately therefore I would appreciate the same response from customers regarding payment and communication. The sooner the payment is received the sooner your items will reach you.
Shipping
As soon as I receive your payment I will ship your item either the same day or the day after the purchase. (Except under very rare circumstances.) Please message me if your country/region is not listed as I usually make exceptions.
Once I have shipped your item I will send the buyer a message straight away confirming that their item(s) are on their way.

I have encountered difficulties with specific postal services in certain countries with lost parcels. So, if you have not received parcels in the past or know of any issues with your postal service then I would recommend paying extra for a tracking service. This way you will know where your parcel is and would be easier to locate. You will need to specify this with me in a message BEFORE buying your item.

If I do not receive communication from the customer about a lost parcel within four weeks of the date in which they purchased the item then unfortunately I am not liable to fix this issue.
Refunds and Exchanges
PLEASE NOTE:
Due to the delicate nature of the intricate parts of some of my items, there is a small possibility that a long distance journey combined with the item being folded for a long period of time can affect the look of the item. If this does occur please don't hesitate to get in touch so I can either fix the item or refund your money (both options will be available after the item has been returned) Please note that there must be a clear distortion with photographic evidence.
I make my items with the up-most care and attention to possible problems like this but unfortunately I cannot control the way in which mail companies handle my items towards their destination.

I always try and resolve any issues customers have and usually communicate what options are available to them via messaging. Unfortunately in the past I have had to issue money for lost parcels when the responsibility for this error lay with the postal service. Therefore, if you do not specify item tracking on your purchase then I cannot issue a refund to you. On occasions such as these I would advise the customer to contact their postal service instead to process a claim for compensation with them.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation.
Additional policies and FAQs
If a customer orders numerous items from my shop within a short time period I will discount the shipping costs and send your items altogether. (Please let me know in advance if you are interested in buying more than one item.)
