~ F.A.Q ~
📍 Why are you a 'Multi DISCIPLINE Artist?'
It would seem I'm considered a multi discipline Artist because I create various styles art using multiple skills, such as taxidermy, sewing, carving bone & antler by hand, designing & hand sewing one of a kind (OOAK) collectors bears. It would seem that those who can knit can't necessarily carve bone!
📍What is preserved Nature?
It's something that was once living that's now professionally preserved (not air dried) by myself. Having retired from professional taxidermy for health reasons, I do still preserve nature on a small scale.
I do not accept commissions for this.
📍Can you teach me how to do taxidermy or give advice?
I would suggest looking on Google or Youtube. There's lots of information to be found.
📍 Some of the things you make say OOAK, what does that mean exactly?
OOAK simply means one of a kind, I will never make another 'what ever it is' exactly the same, unique is another word for it.
📍What is a Pet MEMENTO or Keepsake?
It means I can carve something that can hold ashes for example, or needle felt pets fur, to create tactile keepsake or memento, or enclose ashes in an especially designed bear.
📍Can I come to you to buy something?
There isn't a physical shop, I sell within Etsy and herein my website. However, with prior arrangement, if you're not too far away you're welcome to call & collect your order.
📍Do you do repairs?
Usually! Please click on 'Mend' in the header and follow the links provided.
📍Do you make things to order?
Usually! As long as I can have around a month or so to make it (to enable me to work round my bad days) and dependant on my current workload.
📍 Do I have to pay a deposit with a commissioned order?
A minimum of £30 ( non returnable) is required on all commissioned orders.
