Creator of the Real Monsters plushies series; paper-folder; knitter; daydreamer.
I like beauty, the city, making things, costumes, make-believe, very good hats, ghostly places, Oscar Wilde, Quentin Crisp, Maxwell Demon, trees, dead languages, cinema, politics, feminism, dressing up, glitter & all sorts of clothes. My major needs in life are a bottle of tacky glue and paper I can muss up.
I’m an avid craft swapper (get in touch to trade zines/ATCs/other mail art), and have been hand-painting watercolour ATCs for five or six years.
