I absolutely LOVE your work, especially the butterflies and this one in particular! I'm not sure how to go about inquiring about purchases though... I'm in the US and it sadly doesn't appear as though Wunderkammer has an online shop. Do you accept commissions perhaps?

My email is silenscarmina@gmail.com - thank you!

Thank you Brittany. It's always lovely to hear that people enjoy what I do especially from so far away!

I do accept commissions but I haven't set myself up to take payment internationally via Paypal. Given you could be my second international buyer it's something I need to get on to ASAP. Once I have I will let you and everyone else know here :)
