~Morgaine du Mer of MagickMermaid Studio~ Welcome to my Magickal Realm! As a child I could usually be found with my nose in a book, endlessly daydreaming of far-off places, times gone by and enchanted kingdoms. The seaside has always been especially enchanting to me. I enjoyed imagining my own fantasy world then. Now I live in it and paint it! An eclectic bunch of characters routinely frolic through my imagination. From the magickal and metaphysical to nature, gnomes, bats, and crows; I never know what I'll be painting next! Sometimes I start out with an idea, only to have the main character completely change his or her mind before appearing on the paper.;) I am a self-taught artist working in the mediums of pen and ink, acrylics and watercolours. The original paintings from which I produce the prints take many hours to complete. All artwork is hand-drawn, inked and painted individually; nothing is computer-generated. I use state-of-the art equipment to create a high-resolution print that is as close to the original as possible. Each print is made by me on Archival (acid-free) Matte paper with Archival Inks (lightfastness rated at over 100 years if displayed indoors under glass). Seven colours of ink are sprayed simultaneously onto the paper creating a dazzling array of hues. Known as Giclee, this is a more expensive process than laser and basic ink jet printing. The detail is sharp and the colours are vivid. Mats and backboards are acid-free. Each print is signed. My home is smoke-free. So if you are you as enchanted as I am by beings who are unseen by most and imagined by many, If you have ever walked along the seashore and out of the corner of your eye seen a mermaid flip her tail before disappearing beneath the waves, Tread lightly in the forest and caught a glimpse of elfin magick beneath a cluster of mushrooms, Maybe you ambled through a shady glen and became enveloped by the glimmer of faerie light left behind, Or danced at midnight under a full moon and heard an ethereal whisper beckoning you to look beyond the mist, Then come and meet those who dwell in mystical realms... Some Comments from my Lovely Customers: I love your prints. The mermaids are sensational and your woman with the crystal ball is amazing. Your Greenman is positively superb in person.
