A Very Victorian Mash Up

Welcome to DottyDictionary, my Etsy shop where I indulge my love of old Victorian and earlier engravings.

The images in my DottyDictionary shop are either my own original designs made up of a mix of victorian engravings and given a twist. Or they are lovely vintage images that I have found and cleaned up so that another generation can enjoy them.

I love to take old engravings and reimagine them into new images with a whimsical twist. So hares are given wings, owl mysteriously grow antlers, and my world of magical creatures is filled with clouds of brightly coloured butterflies.

Then I print my images onto the pages of beautiful books from the 1800's.


Apart from my DottyDictionary shop I also have other shops on Etsy:

NauticalNell is my coastal print shop. It's so easy to get inspired by the sea when you live this near, and I love the coastal-home look.

FabFunky is where you will find my original illustrations printed onto antique book pages from the 1800s.

FabFunkyPillows - my silly artwork on pillows/cushions

LoopyLolly is another shop and is full of slightly deliciously loopy animal artworks as art prints and posters, And also canvas prints

FabFunkyLampshades - a mad place with outrageous lampshades for extraordinary homes

I also work in the fine art world under the nom de plume of Suzi Gordon, and have a collection of limited edition fine art prints in my fourth shop:
