Little Seafarers......

  These three adventurers have dominated my sketch books over the last few months and have resulted in some very pretty mermaid dolls, two Persephones and one very handsome fisherman. It's highly likely I will produce more illustrations featuring this fabulous trio but as the Summer hols have just kicked it I might be struggling to get anything together before the Autumn. I have therefore made some mini watercolour greeting card sets for those of you who'd like to enjoy these cute characters while the sun still shines.

  Just popped them into my Etsy Shop


These cards have that lovely homemade quality which I love. Our seaside trio images have been printed onto beautiful watercolour printer paper and mounted onto heavyweight folded blue card. They're more than a greeting card, they are little gifts to give or keep for yourself. Would look lovely in a pretty vintage frame.

Love Letter






  A little note on Persephone (or Percy for short)

  ....Towards the end of the Summer when the sea becomes a little rougher and the evenings a little darker, Persephone likes to spend time in her beach hut retreat working on her gothic novel. She enjoys a glass of strong liquor and can often be seen puffing away on a dainty pipe.






  Mermaids, a fisherman and two Percy dolls....



All my dolls are unique and handmade using new and vintage fabrics. I draw my templates free hand  for each doll and use my machine just for their limbs.


  Here's to Summer!
