Visit a floating shop this summer
Like Howls Moving Castle, this summer I'm turning my narrowboat into a nomadic shop! I'll be roaming the UK canal system selling my unabashedly femme illustrated giftware and prints.

Get on my mailing list for access to the shop's physical & online opening event including a special discount code for you to use both in person and online.

As well as my monthly behind the scenes content and updates from my illustration desk (that I only share by email), you'll also get shop location updates, bonus content and character updates, first product peeks and sample sales, and exclusive discount codes :)
