The art of things that once were... and things that never were.

I adore all things historical and fantastical. From Medieval, Rococo, Regency and Victorian styles to Fantasy, Gothic, Folklore and Fairytale themes, I love the world both as it was and as it wasn't.

My original fantastical and historical illustrations are people and character-centric, depicting fantasy goddesses, fairy tale heroines, 19th-century ladies, and others in between and beyond. I love illustrating fashions, costumes, and personalities. I work with plain paper and pencil first, then paint in Photoshop--a little bit of old-fashioned technology combined with a little bit of new-fangled digital magic.

Another line of my artwork features vintage Victorian pictorial engravings, line art that once illustrated mid-19th-century books, now in the public domain. I remix these period illustrations by digitally hand-colouring them and then pairing them with a few lines of 19th-century poetry, so that the one complements and illuminates the other. I love breathing new life into what are already lovely works of art, and I hope the original artists, engravers and poets would be pleased to see my 21st-century adaptations of their creations.

The digital art prints here in my etsy shop are all handmade: printed by myself with lots of care and attention, using high-quality inks and paper, in order to adorn the walls of people who love history and fantasy as much as I do. ♥

    Once upon a time, there was a girl who loved historical fantasies & fantastical histories. She looked innocent by day, but went bump in the night. She made art, read fairytales, kept nightmares, collected dolls, hunted zombies & adored her cats.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
If you aren't happy with your order for whatever reason you can return it to me, within 30 days of receipt, for a refund of the purchase price + your original shipping cost (excluding your return shipping cost), issued when I receive the order back in as-new condition.

If your order gets lost or ruined in the mail (or if I've sent you the wrong thing in a moment of madness) I will absolutely re-send it free of charge!

If there's any other problem, please contact me and I'll do my best to make it right!

(Please note that the colour balance of a print may be slightly different than that of the image on your computer, due to the wide variety of screen settings. I print each one myself and make certain it meets my standards.)
I accept payment through Paypal (including credit cards through Paypal).
I ship within three business days of payment; prints are shipped in individual plastic sleeves inside a cardboard envelope.

I ship prints anywhere in the world via Canada Post Lettermail. Delivery is generally within a week for major centres in Canada, and 1-2 weeks for the USA and internationally. These estimates are not guaranteed by Canada Post, however, and delivery may take longer, especially for those destinations that are furthest away.

My shipping fees include actual postage cost plus packaging and handling.

Shipping costs (in Canadian dollars) for 1 art print:
Within Canada - CAD$2.50 (additional prints* in the same envelope: +$0.50 each)
To the USA - CAD$3.50 (additional prints* in the same envelope: +$1.00 each)
Everywhere else - CAD$6.50 (additional prints* in the same envelope: +$2.00 each)
[*up to 6 prints per envelope]

Please contact me first if you are interested in purchasing more than 6 prints; I will create a special bulk listing for you with the appropriate combined shipping cost.

If you would prefer faster shipping (guaranteed within 8 business days) and/or delivery confirmation, I'm happy to accommodate and ship by Canada Post Xpresspost. Please be aware that this shipping method is very expensive. Contact me before ordering for details.
Additional policies and FAQs
Other print sizes may be available upon request; please contact me if you would like to purchase a print in a different size than what's listed. More prints than the quantity stated may be available as well.

And please note that I have cats, so there may be the occasional bit of kitty fur in your envelope! >^_^<
