Where are you?
When did you first start drawing/designing seriously?
What was the first product you ever had for sale?
I began designing papers and toppers to use in workshops in my bricks and mortar store back in 2006 because I couldn’t get what I wanted for my classes. My customers loved them so much they wanted to buy them so it went from there, with designing papers and decoupage sheets and then stamps and I’ve never stopped since!
If you weren’t doing what you are doing now…. what job would you have?
I’d be a cake baker!
How long have you been in business?
ODDELLA FAIRY – ICKYINK ART
What is your favorite piece in the whole store?
ODDELLA FAIRY – ICKYINK ART
Who is your inspiration/muse?
I don’t really have one one thing or person I’m inspired by although I think I am heavily influenced by my childhood favourite author Enid Blyton. I’m like a sponge, I just soak up everything I see every day and my inspiration generally comes when I’m asleep and wakes me in the middle of the night with an idea.
How many people work with/for you?
What job did you have BEFORE you started drawing/designing for a living?
I have always worked within a graphics/print environment but not as a designer, so I have years of managing print, packaging and design for people like Disney, Tesco, Airfix, Cadburys, Nestle, Mars to name a few.
What’s your favorite color?
What was your favorite subject in school…?
Erm…Art! Of course!
If you suddenly changed careers and went to work at Disney…what character would you want to be?
What’s your favorite craftroom/business supply or tool that you couldn’t live without?
A black fineliner pen
Do you secretly watch WWE wrestling when no one is around?
If you were offered a trip to the moon, would you go..and if so .. which of your images/products would leave on the moon??
If I can come back I’d go and I’d draw while I was there so I guess it would be a drawing of the earth with me sat on the North Pole like a big fat snowball freezing my butt off lol
Do you plan to grow old gracefully, or disgracefully?
Disgracefully of course!
If you were a classic car…. what would you be?
Not a car, sorry – I’d be a Lambretta SX200 with all the trimmings!
Who scared you most as a kid when you were being naughty.. your parents or the boogey man?
Eeek! My parents for sure!
What do you love most about all the people you meet through your work?
I love how craft appeals to such a diverse range of people from all walks of life and brings them together. Most of all for me, it really warms my heart when I hear that someone the other side of the world is using a piece of my work to create something amazing, I find it a very humbling experience that someone felt my work was worth spending their time and money on.

If you got offered a weekend in a haunted house/castle etc.. would you say yes?
Hell yes! How exciting!
What’s the one song guaranteed to have you shaking your booty anytime, anyplace ..anywhere?
What should be written on your gravestone when you die?
Really?????!!! She did?!!!! Haha!
Winnie in Wonderland
Which drawing/product are you the most proud of in your collection?
I think as an artist you’re only as good as your latest work so it would always need to be the last thing I did but at this moment in time I am mega in love with this whole collection “Winnie in Wonderland”
Would you go cave diving with sharks?
No! I deal with enough sharks in life never mind swimming with them!
Which decade do you think had the best music?
Have you ever been on a blind date…. and if so.. was it fun, or a nightmare?
What’s your favorite hobby when you want to relax?
I don’t get time any more but I love 2 Tone and Ska music so I used to have an original Italian lambretta and used to go to Scooter rallies on weekends.
