As an artist who has always been drawn to the darker side of life. I noticed there was a distinct gap in the Gothic, macabre market. Sure there are thousands of skull related Gothic merchandise, however I noticed there was a lack of elegant macabre imagery with a Victorian twist, because for me , Gothic isn't about death or anything grim its about elegance, beauty and decadence. 
The gap in the market I noticed also extended to macabre witchcraft imagery so guess what , I've catered for that too, so now when you need macabre Gothic or witchy gifts and art work with a dark elegant twist you can visit my shop- Charlies  Crazy couture and I can cater for every one of your darkest needs . problem solved

A little bit more about me :

I studied Fine Art for Design at Batley School of Art and Design (affiliate of Leeds Metropolitan University) and graduated with a First class BA Hons degree.  Since my graduation I have opened my own etsy business which has grown remarkably over the years shipping world wide and growing every day.

Throughout my studies and working life I have always found myself drawn to the dark and macabre side of visual arts and history often drawing influence from subjects such as Victorian mourning culture, folk lore/ faerie tales , witchcraft, classic horror, Weimar Cabaret and astrology.

I would describe my style illustration style as macabre, Gothic, other worldly and elegant. I feel there is an occult air about the work I produce reminiscent of something one might find whilst rifling through the pages of the books found in an old wise woman’s cottage or a mystic book on demonology in a decrepit old book store.

To keep an old world feel to my work the medium I use mainly is pen and ink to create a Victorian etching look, occasionally using Photoshop for digital colouring.

 Along side my illustration work I'm also a maker of knitted elaborate costumes and singer of comical songs whilst wielding a ukulele I have played at many cabaret shows and festivals over the years and still welcome both performance and costume making collaborations and commissions.
