Home to the Artwork and Treats of Lee Foster-Wilson

Bonbi Forest is a home of sorts to the illustrated wares of artist, illustrator and author
Lee Foster-Wilson.

Lee grew up in the Cornish countryside surrounded by nature and her family’s menagierie of animals, a lot of it was spent outside in all weathers having adventures on horseback or exploring local beaches with her friends. These experiences when she was young have defined and influenced the things she seeks out as inspiration, it was inevitable that the natural world would find it’s way into her artwork and designs. The shapes and colours of nature always seem to make an appearance in her work no matter what she is drawing. Lee enjoys observing the relationship of people to nature and to each other, often defined in the phrases, text and weird and wonderful celestial and mystical symbols she likes to add to her pieces.

Lee started Bonbi Forest in 2006 after graduating from her Fine Art degree at the University of Brighton as a way to get her artwork out into the world. She started with hand screen printed t-shirts for bands and friends, printing them on the kitchen table and using the sofa as a drying rack. The t-shirts are long gone but the range has evolved and in their place is an ever expanding and beautiful range of jewellery, accessories, art prints, cards and stationery all featuring her colourful and thoughtful artwork.

These days Lee has some help assembling the Bonbi Forest jewellery from her sister-in-law, Mo and she has graduated from the kitchen table to two lovely spaces, a special workshop a short stroll from her front door where each and every Bonbi Forest order is packed, and a home studio where she spends her time dreaming up new ideas and making drawings.

Lee is also a freelance illustrator represented by Jehane LTD and has authored two books with Quarto, Creative Marker Art and Beyond and The Grown Up’s Guide to Making Art with Kids. As an illustrator her drawings have been commissioned and licensed by clients including Mollie Makes Magazine, Scholastic, Bravery Magazine, Shruti Designs, Design House Greetings, Sellers Publishing and more! To see Lee’s art portfolio and for information about commissioning her artwork please visit www.leefosterwilson.com

She currently lives back in the Cornish countryside in a converted threshing barn not far from the sea with her husband, two children and their cat. Alongside her work she enjoys spending time with her family, attempting to grow things, beach combing and tries to tread lightly.

Delivery

I want you to get your goodies as soon as possible so I endeavour to get orders out as quickly as I can. Items that are in stock will be dispatched within 1-3 working days of receipt of payment.

All items are shipped from the UK. Standard shipping is added automatically however shipping upgrades for trackable delivery are available.
Please note: STANDARD DELIVERY IS NOT TRACKABLE! If you would like trackable delivery please upgrade the shipping to UK Recorded or International Signed For!

UK Standard delivery - 1-2 business days from shipping (not trackable) – £3.25
(If you have just ordered greetings cards, standard shipping is £1.20)

UK Recorded Delivery - 1-2 business days from shipping (fully trackable) – £4.70

International Standard Delivery - 5-7 business days from shipping (not trackable) – £7
**This service will likely take longer if you are in the EU - since Brexit various customs procedures apply in different countries and some orders have been taking several weeks to clear customs. Please bear this in mind when ordering!**

International Signed For Delivery - 5-7 business days from shipping (fully trackable) – £14.50
**This service will likely take longer if you are in the EU - since Brexit various customs procedures apply in different countries and some orders have been taking several weeks to clear customs. Please bear this in mind when ordering!**

**PLEASE NOTE** Shipping times are an estimate only and items may take longer if weather is bad or during the busy Christmas season. Very occasionally International orders have been known to take a few weeks to arrive, I am afraid I don't know why this is but if you have a particularly time sensitive order you may want to consider International Signed For delivery.

Bonbi Forest is not responsible for customs duty or brokerage fees on international orders. These will have to be paid by the customer where applicable.

If an item is returned to me by the Royal Mail as unclaimed I will contact you to arrange for the item to be redelivered. In such circumstances I am unable to offer any refund on your order, but redelivery will be arranged as soon as possible. Please respect that if such a situation occurs there may be an extra charge for postage to cover the cost of resending the item for you.

Bonbi Forest cannot be held responsible for items lost once they have been handed to the Royal Mail for delivery both in the UK and when being posted to overseas locations.

Privacy

Bonbi Forest Etsy Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy.

Information I Collect:
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewellery, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It:
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list via my website www.bonbiforest.com;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure:
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention:
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 7 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU:
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Dropbox, Mailchimp and Google Cloud are Privacy Shield certified.

Your Rights:
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me:
For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Lee Foster-Wilson, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at info [!at] bonbiforest.com. Alternately, you may mail me at:
