"She has magic in her fingers and devilry dancing in her blood."

I was born during the Halloween season, imagining skeletons under the floorboards and ghosts in the attic for as long as I can remember. One of the first things I created was a protective potion I hid beneath my bed, to ward away the spirits I knew trudged the halls of my childhood home. During my adolescence, I struggled with night terrors- of deep sea trenches and cloaked figures that would torment me well after I opened my eyes. I had recurring dreams of a red house with a narrow twisting stairway. I held on to waking dreams of dispelling these spectres into the night. Eventually finding sleep stained in India ink. Each year for All Hallows' Eve, I would carefully plan out elaborate rituals or visit a dark, secluded cemetery. Watching children skip by in masks badly fit to their small faces, capes held on by their fathers’ shoe string, makeshift stitching from their mothers’ repair kits.

As soon as I came of age, I relocated to Salem - Witch City, where I taught myself to burn Ouija boards in the attic apartment of a haunted house. The same old ghostly presence followed me to work at an old theatre, where I stitched costumes late into the night while displaced voices echoed through the rafters. As a grown woman, I still see Halloween Trees and shrouds flapping in the wind and they inspire me to create, question, and continue to toe the line between the mundane and the twilight world of spirits.

I gladly accept commissions - I am experienced in a variety of media including pen and ink, watercolor, oils, textiles, and sewing.

Even a Witch's deliveries sometimes end up less than 100 percent perfect. If there's something wrong with your order, please contact me.

I accept returns if you're not satisfied with your order.
By law, the return window is 14 days after receipt of the goods. The cancellation period starts the moment the customer receives a product, so that means you have fourteen CALENDAR days (not business days) to return your product.

Please note that buyers bear the shipping cost related to returning goods.

If I receive an UNCLAIMED package at the studio, I will notify you and you have 14 business days from the date of notification to re-instate the order. If you do so, the item will be shipped again and you will be billed a second shipping cost. If you do not reply within 14 days, the item will be returned to inventory (if it is deemed fit to re-stock), and you will be refunded the balance of your original charge less a 5 dollar re-stocking fee. If the item is too damaged to re-stock, I will refund you 50 percent of your balance.

Your item(s) will be shipped to the Etsy address specified in your order, If you need the package sent somewhere else, please write the address in the note to seller.

First Class Mail is the cheapest mailing option but offers no tracking number. If you prefer registered mail, which can be tracked, please let me know and I will alter the shipping charges accordingly.

I try to ship orders as quickly as possible - it normally takes 2-3 business days for in-stock items- made to order items take about 1 week. I always contact customers to let them know when their order has been shipped.

International shipping time varies, depending on your country.
