I first launched Razorblade Mermaid in September 2007, after leaving a particularly stressful job to take up a new position at the University of Sheffield. I suddenly felt alive again and as if my brain had been given a chance to find it's self and could see where I was heading in life. I've always been creative used to working on different projects and used to make jewellery years ago and decided to start again and to see which path it led me to!

I quickly starting building my collection and selling at the local vintage fashion fairs in Sheffield where I'm based and travelling further afield to trade at tattoo conventions, custom car hot rod shows, roller derby bouts and alternative music events, mainly rockabilly and psychobilly. 

There are so many inspirations for my work, I am obsessed with anything nautical, I love the coast, seaside and anything sea creature related. Other inspirations include vintage fashion, sugar skull Mexican designs, tattoo art, birds and Carmen Miranda fruit designs. 

About me, wife and mother, collector of ink, bright hair, make up and loud clothes addict, love hot rods, motorbikes, loud rock n roll.
