About

Video summary: Watch this short video to see how I create my drypoint prints.

Capturing the surfing lifestyle: waves, freedom and adventure.

Mermaid’s Coin is a one-woman, Fremantle-based business creating ocean-inspired ‘surf art’ that is vibrant, retro and fun. Here in Australia, on our 'Island Home', lots of people have a deep love of the ocean. Through Mermaid’s Coin, I combine my two passions (surfing and making) to create original artworks and limited edition prints of the beach, ocean and surf culture.

When travelling around the world in 2010 on a 'surfari', I was inspired by artists in California and Hawaii, who use their medium to express their love of, and relationship with the ocean and it finally clicked to combine my love of surfing with my need to make art. The birth of my first child in 2013 allowed me the space to launch Mermaid’s Coin. The business has slowly grown to incorporate an online shop, market stall and brick and mortar stockists in Western Australia and interstate, and overseas.

I love working with watercolour and there is nothing like that first peek as you peel a successful print away from the plate. Collagraphs and linoprints are hand-pulled using an etching press and then tinted with artist quality watercolours – so each one is unique.

~~~ SUSTAINABILITY ~~~
I strive to reduce the environmental impact of my arts practise. I generally use water-based inks and solvent-free products, reuse old phone books and packing paper as part of my printmaking process, and feed the rest to my worms! I collect mat board offcuts from my framer which I turn into printing plates to etch with my designs.

I reuse packing supplies where possible, and in 2018 I have started phasing in natural cellophane to replace my clear plastic sleeves so that many of my products are plastic free! For greeting cards and reproductions, I partner with a FSC certified printer who lives less than 5km away.

~~~ The Vibe ~~~
I strive to create art that is evocative of...
A sunset surf with your girlfriend, a glassy, knee high ride at dawn, escaping with the girls for a weekend 'surfari', getting lost and finding yourself, lone walks on the beach, finding shells, connecting with nature and having fun!
