My name is Anne-Marie and I live in Adelaide, South Australia with my husband, two young children, our loyal schnauzer and a very fluffy ragdoll cat. I grew up on Eyre Peninsula, by the sea, and I love to paint mermaids in my spare time. I paint using acrylics on wood, shells and semi-precious stones, creating unique mermaid bracelets, boxes and pendants. I also love drawing mermaids and other fantasy creatures using graphite and colour pencils.

I’ve always loved drawing from a young age and was always encouraged by my family to develop my talent. As a teenager I attended many local art workshops and focused on art in my senior year of high school. After moving from the country to the city for university, I found opportunities selling my art prints at local craft markets and medieval fairs. I worked on drawing commissions such as children’s portraits, fantasy book covers and sci-fi cover art for an online magazine. After working in a digital format for a few years I had a longing to return to traditional methods and I began painting on wood bracelets using acrylics. I hadn’t really attempted painting with acrylics since high school so I had to teach myself and learn from my own mistakes. Sometimes you don’t know if it will work until you try it, and it if it doesn’t work the first time just keep on going until you get there, the beauty of acrylics is that they can easily be painted over, and they dry quickly. I always have ideas and dreams about new projects, don’t be afraid to try something different and unique, you may not master it on the first attempt but with practice you can bring your dreams to life.

As I mostly paint in miniature I don’t require a lot of space to work in, my father made a beautiful architect desk which I have set up in the corner of our living room along with a bright floor lamp, which is wonderful for painting and drawing in the evenings. I love being able to work surrounded by my family and have their company while I bring my designs to life. I paint using non-toxic acrylics and seal my work with high gloss acrylic varnish. For drawing, my favourite pencils to use are mechanical pencils, which are great for fine details and line work.

Care instructions

Handpainted art pendant necklaces and bracelets are sealed with high gloss lacquer which is water resistant but it is not recommended to wear them in the shower or whilst swimming. Do not let water sit on the surface for a prolonged period or immerse in water as this could turn the lacquer cloudy.
