Hello and welcome to my shop...

I create illustrative sculpture and wall work inspired by Victorian gadgetry & invention. My extraordinary objective is to realise the necessities and requirements that would be involved in ‘fairy life’: to provide everything a fairy would demand during its daily existence.

I have named these ‘Fairy Aiding Inventions’, invented by ‘Brain’ (me). They are theoretically functional items for the mildly eccentric. I have exhibited my sculpture all over the UK and abroad. They have also won some lovely awards over the years.

Please stop by the website for a look.

I spend a lot of time ‘inventing’ and more recently I have started to produce limited edition prints, original drawings and hand made books. I love my world!!

    On Etsy since 2012

    Designer, maker, illustrator & occasional educator... "Fairy Lady" to many.

    Since graduating in 2001, I have plied all my time and energy into creating my work and have managed to gain both National and International recognition. I have mainly generated work for display in large themed/solo exhibitions, providing me with extensive experience at producing work that is of a high quality.

    A number of my sculptures have been purchased for a permanent collection helds by Rochdale Art Gallery and Leeds City Council –ARTEMIS (Educational Services).

    During 2005 I worked on a large scale suspended sculpture for the main atrium at a newly built Health Centre commissioned by the North Kirklees PCT. In 2007 I completed and installed two wall sculptures designed for the new Pediatric wing at Moorfields Eye Hospital.

    I find myself preoccupied with everyday life, but not my own- that of the fairy. Consequently my sculptures place what can only be described as ‘fairies’ with machine-like contraptions. They depict fairies going about their everyday lives. Within my work my extraordinary objective is to realise the necessities and requirements that would be involved in ‘fairy life’: to provide everything a fairy would demand during its daily existence.

    This central theme runs throughout my work but is incredibly versatile and can lend itself to almost any brief or situation with a bit of imagination. My sculptures evoke a sense of nostalgia, escapism and make-believe necessary to remove the viewer temporarily from their worries. I endeavor to capture every imagination!

    Additional policies and FAQs
    Questions about your order?
    Please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

    What happens if the item I have ordered is faulty?
    I spend a lot of time sourcing the best quality materials for my designs and ensuring the quality of the products I make. However, should I have missed something, you have a right to return faulty goods. You can do this up to 14 days after receipt of the goods.

    Depending on the circumstances, you may be entitled to a refund (full or partial), a repair or replacement.

    You will be required to send photos of the item to allow me to assess which option is most appropriate.

    What happens if my order doesn’t arrive?
    If your order is lost in transit, I have to assume that the contract for your order is terminated. In these circumstances, I will provide either a replacement item, or if this not possible, a refund.

    However, I am bound by the conditions of Royal Mail's policy regarding lost packages. Royal Mail do not consider a package lost until the below timescales have passed:

    UK 2nd Class Signed For: 10 working days after due date
    UK 1st Class Signed For: 10 working days after due date
    UK Royal Mail Special Delivery: 5 working days after due delivery date/time

    For information about potential shipping times for international orders, please see my Delivery Policy relating to delivery.

    Undeliverable Orders
    If a package is returned to me because it is undeliverable due to an inaccurate shipping address provided by yourself, or if you don’t claim your package from the sorting centre, I cannot be held responsible.

    Under these circumstances, you will be responsible for the cost of re-shipping the package.

    UK Standard Free Delivery: 2nd Class Signed For

    Royal Mail aim to deliver this service in the next working day.

    Royal Mail Special Delivery
    Royal Mail aim to deliver this service by 1pm the next working day, excluding Saturdays.

    International services can be notorious for customs delays. Unfortunately, there is nothing I, nor the delivery service providers, can do to avoid these potential delays. Please remember, I am not responsible for any delays to your delivery due to customs.

    From experience, I recommend anticipating delivery within 7-14 working days, however, this could be 21 working days around high traffic times of year
