Mermaid Mantle.
This mermaid raiment was inspired by tide-line treasures washed up on the beach.
A mermaid wouldn't need many clothes. Perhaps only a little cape fashioned from netting; from flotsam and jetsam, bejewelled with barnacles, to protect her delicate decolleté.


Jean Hoad

Painting of Chestnut

Jean works with the rich colours, textures and scents of nature to make art that appeals to all our senses.

















Jane MontaguePainting of rabbit running with a woman

"My paintings and other artwork are inspired by the natural world and mythology. I like to explore and highlight different emotions through the use of an unexpected colour range and juxtaposition of unrelated objects."
