Which part of the customizing process did you enjoyed the most?
I always enjoy painting the faces on my customs, this brings them to life.

How and when did you begun customizing?
I began customizing nearly 2 years ago after being persuaded by a friend and I haven’t put the paintbrush down since. This along with my freelance design job is now my main line of work.

What keeps you inspired?
The urge to push forward with my work and grow as an artist. I read a lot about greek and egyptian mythology and get a lot of inspiration from that for stories and names for my customs

BIO

Since beginning to customize toys in early 2009, my work has gone from strength to strength customizing bigger and more detailed figures. I always enjoy writing a story or background for my customs so the owner feels they are getting a little bit of Lunabee’s world along with their custom. When I customize toys, the main hallmarks on my work are pretty colour palettes, tiny details and ¬†creepy but cute faces. I have has a production qee and have another on the way in 2011 which is fantastic, so keep your eyes peeled for the release!
