Frequently Asked Questions
So what's with the name Fatal Femme?Last year I went back to the Velvet Underground again. Lou and Nico have seen me through alot over the years, and this time was no exception. I've always been captivated by the song "Femme Fatale," it is soft and gentle and caring as describes a hurricane of a woman- but we're all hurricanes, aren't we? We can be the eye of the storm or the brutal winds and the switch in that dichotomy hinges on a whim. When I was a girl I would listen to Nico's deep voice in my head phones and be swept away by the promise of a woman who could be feminine and mysterious while concurring whatever she set her mind to. Throughout my life as an artist I have come back to this idea over and over and as I began to develop my studio practice in earnest I felt the same dichotomy in my work. It is gentle and brutal, compassionate and cruel, strong and tender. My work encompasses that volatile nature of femininity whether I want it to or not- and perhaps that's fatal. If that is to be the death of me then so be it.
You make alot of different thingsI do! One of the things I detested most about art school was the idea that in order to be thematically cohesive all of your art had to be visually cohesive. I've never been the kind of person to be content working on the same thing day in and day out and that made it really important to me to have multiple different stylistic outlets to work in. Switching back and forth between the mediums and styles in my practice keeps me energized and excited about what I am making. Frequently I will find myself working on a print and I'll find inspiration for my next paper cut, or while cutting patterns I'll start building my next collage concept in my mind. My various styles inform and fuel each other creatively and they also bring me a great deal of joy, which is what making is all about for me.
Do you accept commissions?Absolutely! I enjoy working with people to create pieces that are unique and individual to them. I have found that in particular the cut paper pieces are popular as wedding or first anniversary gifts. Due to the amount of time it takes me to create these pieces I require 6-8 weeks of lead time on all commissioned works. Please feel free to email me at email@example.com for a quote.
What is an FAQ section?An FAQ section can be used to quickly answer common questions about you or your business, such as “Where do you ship to?”, “What are your opening hours?” or “How can I book a service?” It’s a great way to help people navigate your site and can even boost your site’s SEO.
