I want to live in it.

Christine rose to prominence on Instagram where she showcased her creations. She now has over 300,000 followers. She is an “artist, seamstress, photographer, baker, pin-up girl.” She is also author of the book, Deceptive Desserts: A Lady’s Guide To Baking Bad. Her creative dark twists can best be described as charming. She is beyond average or basic. Her work is as inspirational as it is artistic.

One of her major inspirations was none other than Tim Burton. In fact, her creations led to a collaboration with him for his 2016 film Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children.

“A former hair/makeup stylist to the stars, McConnell was given carte blanche to create work – whether it was photos and costumes for a 12-month calendar, or her signature, 100% edible, elaborately creepy baked goods. In this case, it was a nightmarish ‘Wight cake’ and a spinning gingerbread version of the Peculiar house (it tells time) as imaginative promos for the movie.”
