Childhood memories re-imagined as adult gifts and artwork

​A former Costume Designer now a Freelance Artist and Marketing Manager for a mental health arts charity. I grew up in Thailand which was where my love for all things colourful and kitsch began. Also due to a lack of English speaking cartoons as a kid I ended up watching my parents huge film collection, with the first film I remember being Terminator. Possibly not the wisest choice for a toddler, but I loved it and have a massive nostalgic fondness for anything 80’s and 90’s because of this!

My products range from stickers, jewellery, colouring books and greetings cards to upcycled retro homewear. I also draw custom pieces, so if you have a deep seated love for your husband, hamster or home and want a reminder of how unique they are get in touch!

I am a Manchester based artist specialising in unique handmade gifts, jewellery, fashion and home wear. Taking loved retro items and themes and giving them a new twist! All Items are handmade and I make sure that there are no imperfections with the finished product. However, all items are hand made and sometimes use original retro and vintage materials which must be taken into account when purchasing, though I will always include clear photos in any listing.

I aim to send all orders out within 3 working days of receipt via 2nd class Royal Mail (Air Mail for international orders).
