☆ about my practice ☆

hi there! my name is helena and i am a 20-something year old with a passion to create! @artbug666 is my instagram account where i've been sharing my original artwork to thousands of strangers over the past 2 years. there have always been requests from people to buy my artwork, specifically prints and commissions, but i never really knew how to start. after losing my job due to COVID, i finally decided to just do it and open my first etsy shop where selling my work would be possible! and now here we are! :-)

although i've always primarily been a painter working with both oil and acrylic, my work also consists of sculptures that are either made of polymer clay or ceramic. the images i create are inspired by my albanian-american identity & diaspora, femininity, the flawed creatures of greek mythology, and a lot of my own experiences that have shaped me. my art is very personal and (sometimes) relatable and i have always wanted it to be accessible to many people. i appreciate everyone's support in my artistic endeavors and i hope that just obtaining a print of my work evokes even the slightest positive emotion in my customers and supporters.

everything in this shop is handmade by me unless stated otherwise, and all my prints are printed through digicopy. i make my work with so much love, thought and intention and i hope that you feel it when you receive your package !!! xoxo <3

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I am not doing personal commissions for paintings, sculptures or drawings at this time. I always try my best to follow any specific custom requests from you that are within reason and fit my price range while also maintaining my artistic expression. All sculptures are made with Sculpey polymer clay and misc jewelry-making materials and charms. I may paint on these and they are purely made of baked, glazed polymer clay.

What if my item is damaged?

Polymer clay pieces are wrapped and packaged with lots of care and precaution. These pieces can be fragile depending on their form and can break if not handled with care. I will never ship a broken item to you & I will always take precautionary measures to ensure that your order is equipped with safe and protective packaging. That being said, I am not responsible if your item gets damaged through postage and I do not do refunds, returns or exchanges. In the unfortunate event that this happens, please contact me.

Care instructions

If purchasing a polymer clay sculpture from me, please handle gently and with lots of care. I do my best to package these safely for you. As with lots of clay items, dropping it or carelessly handling it can result in breaking or damaging it. If you accidentally break off a piece from the sculpture, super gorilla glue usually fixes it. I am not responsible if you damage your item through your care so please do not contact me for compensation if this happens. These are not toys so please handle gently and carefully!
