Piper is a character from an upcoming novel by author Nicole Fleming. Much of the design was  dictated by Nicole’s descriptions within the text, then rendered by me into an illustration.

Piper is a mermaid without the traditional fins you normally see. I wanted to show her at home in the water, and wearing jewellery that suggested her heritage.

The character and her likeness is copyrighted to Nicole Fleming.

Visit a floating shop this summer
Like Howls Moving Castle, this summer I'm turning my narrowboat into a nomadic shop! I'll be roaming the UK canal system selling my unabashedly femme illustrated giftware and prints.

Get on my mailing list for access to the shop's physical & online opening event including a special discount code for you to use both in person and online.

As well as my monthly behind the scenes content and updates from my illustration desk (that I only share by email), you'll also get shop location updates, bonus content and character updates, first product peeks and sample sales, and exclusive discount codes :)
