It's difficult to express how psyched I am about the masks Karen and Rich have made for me. They made me 100 masks (all of different Indian animals - bengal tiger, red panda, elephant, gaur, peacock, monkey, and leopard), and I know they will be the hit of our wedding afterparty. Karen and Rich are some of the most talented artists I have ever seen. What creativity! It's hard to believe. Pictures don't do it justice.

Behind the mask

We knew from the first time we met that we wanted to work together. We both had creative backgrounds and a mutual love of costume made masquerade masks the obvious choice.

Years on, we haven't looked back- we work so well together, creating very different designs but constantly taking inspiration from each other and all that we do together.

As for the name- Karen draws monsters and when Rich suggested using their names put together, the result sounded like a firm of solicitors. This was greeted with a round of grins, grimaces and squeaks from the imaginary world. We looked at each other, grinned and it stuck :)

To see what else Karen gets up to, drop in to her art store at

In case that's not enough we also make funny little puppets etc at

    I love costume and masks in particular - for all that I spend most of my time working in comfy t-shirts and combat trousers, it's a great feeling to pick out a mask that expresses your mood and go out as your true self :)

    I'm happiest surrounded by paper, pliers and beads, seeing our designs come to life. It's a great feeling when a mask is finally shaped and takes on a personality of its own.
