About the artist

Illustrator and painter from Essex, living near Oxford. I work mainly using watercolours, pencils, and sometimes inks. I love anything fantastical and based in myth and legend.

Title of artwork

In the Kelp

Description of artwork

Seals in kelp fields served as inspiration for this, and I just really wanted to paint a mermaid serenely floating in her seaweedy home, her hair intertwined with the tendrils from the kelp.

Materials used

Watercolour, coloured pencil, salt.
