Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

If you wish to send something as a gift, I would be more than happy to gift wrap it for you and can even include a written message for the receiver on your part.

Custom and personalised orders

If you like a certain piece but would like something custom made for you, please send me a private message explaining what you would like and I will let you know if it's something I can make and how long it would take. If it's all good and payment is sent, I will make the order and post it tracked, but please note that for some items processing time might be delayed depending on what supplies I need to order and how long they take to arrive.

Sizing details

If you desire a certain length for a chain or necklace, I am happy to shorten or add length to what I have available.
Please let me know if you have an allergy to any kind of metal - if you send me a message I can let you know if I can replace metal parts with alternatives.
This might also involve a longer processing time if I need to order certain supplies, but if you don't mind waiting I will gladly find an alternative for you.

Care instructions

My artwork is usually glued to a frame and covered in glass or resin so it is waterproof. That being said, I have quite a few pieces made with lace or fabrics and I wouldn't recommend getting them very wet. They should be stored in a cool dry place, so please keep away from damp areas.

Please avoid scratching glass/resin that protects the artwork, so please don't store right next to anything with sharp corners/edges.

Creating the artwork.

Each painted piece is one of a kind, painted by hand, and although I use reference images for the anatomy of animals, skulls, etc., the overall image and design is from my imagination.
