This is a gorgeous print of one of my personal artworks and it will be printed especially for you at the time of your order. A beautiful mermaid print you can frame for your beach house or island home!


Magical fair folk lie hidden inside the Jade Turbo - related to mermaids, they are shy gentle creatures. Perhaps you will see one deep beneath the waves or hiding in a rockpool, next to the periwinkles.


The original artwork was completed using Derwent Artist colour pencils and metallic pens on paper using a real Jade Turbo shell from my collection as a drawing reference. Actual Derwent pencils used for the original artwork include: Jade Green, Turquoise Blue, Kingfisher Blue, Raw Sienna, Venetian Red, Chocolate Brown, and more.

The Rockpool

Once I came upon a rockpool
quiet and still
sheltered from the waves
where little fish darted
and periwinkles clung

Strange plants grew
between polished pebbles
and hiding in a corner
something precious shone
in shades of green
and whorls of gold
- a treasure shell

And as I watched
a saltwater-nymph emerged
she smiled at me
and told me the secrets
of the sea

Ohmygod beautiful piece of artwork. I can't believe how amazing it turned out. I don't have any pictures of it yet, but it looks so much more amazing in person than in the listing! Which is almost unbelievable because I fell in love it the moment I saw it. As a complimentary gift for ordering this, we also received a small drawing of a dragon that was breathtaking, and a few words from the artist, hand written with pencil on the back. We are framing both pieces of art and placing them among other handmade pictures, to show this artist's amazing artistic abilities. So amazed and happy with this piece of art that I buy more like this in a heartbeat. A beautiful piece for a great price. Thanks so much!

I love this print! It is every bit as lovely in person as it is as pictured. The perfect combination of pencil and color. The paper quality is very good also. Ordered one for my sister as she fell in love with it as well. Shipping was very fast. Packaged well. Will definitely order from her again
