Art & Poetry of Mermaids Mini Book Release


I was so excited today to receive my new “Art & Poetry of Mermaids” mini books back from the printers – and they look gorgeous!  I spent quite a bit of time putting the layout together for these, selecting the most beautiful mermaid illustrations to go with each of the lovely poems.  And also deciding which illustration and poem to open with and finish with.

The booklet also includes two poems written by my mother, Joy Broughton, who sadly passed away in 2002 from breast cancer.  I think we would’ve had a great time collaborating together on an illustrated poetry book so this book is dedicated with much love to her 🙂




This booklet would be the perfect little gift for someone who loves mermaids!  You can purchase the book by itself from my Etsy shop here:

It’s also available in a Gift Set which includes a Mermaid Picture Pendant Necklace, which can be purchased here:

“Seafoam Dreams” Hand Painted Mermaid Jasper Pendant


Yesterday I finished painting another dreaming mermaid on a stunning green Sea Sediment Jasper pendant.  This one of a kind miniature painting was based on my drawing “Tranquil Mermaid”.


The pendant is 5cm high and 4.5cm wide with a 100% Sterling Silver bail & trim.  This gorgeous mermaid was painted in acrylics and sealed with a beautiful high gloss varnish.  Her beautiful long curly hair and green flowing tail are highlighted with fine golden brushstrokes.



This pendant is now sold but please visit my Etsy shop to see my latest creations for sale.
