About

How this all happened.

When I show people my shop I say, "This is what my writer's block looks like." That's how my cats and rabbits and mermaids came about. I was stuck on a novel I was writing, (I'm a writer by trade) and started making cats and mermaids to get out of my head and into my hands. The first bunch looked pretty terrible. But after a while they started taking a clearer shape, and now they're all over the house. So now I write books, magazine articles, and make cats and mermaids. Which to me just goes to show that all procrastination can turn into something wonderful if you enjoy it.

Welcome! I'm so excited to be a part of Etsy and be surrounded by all this creative goodness.

The mermaids featured on this site are models, but I love to make mermaids with someone or something in mind, so if you're buying a mermaid for someone special please feel free to contact me and I'd be happy to work with you on customizing the details.
