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.

Magical fair folk lie hidden inside the Nautilus - 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 in May 2006 using Derwent Artist colour pencils and metallic acrylic paints on paper using a real Nautilus shell from my collection as a drawing reference. Inspired by the sea, this artwork is a visual expression of my personal quest for inner strength and symbolises a time when I began to slowly unfold and "emerge from my shell", gaining confidence in my art and also confidence within myself.


Sacred spirals wrap
around your unseen

In your stillness
my soul rests

I unfurl,
and healed

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

Please excuse my poor lighting- apartment bathrooms will never be able to do these prints justice. The artwork is absolutely breathtaking in person, the package was so carefully and beautifully packaged, and the shop owner was great with communication. I will be ordering again!
