Original Pen & Ink Drawing by Anita Inverarity

The Selkie is a Scottish Water Sprite who splashes unsuspecting passers by from rock pools and lochs- she is mischeivous and alluring. The sea Selkie comes in the guise of a seal and seduces sailors with her big brown eyes.


Selkie is included in this great display of framed redbubble cards posted by Barbara Glatzesder- Barbaras pic won Mr. Baxters Buyers Booth Award Sept 09

Anita Inverarity is a fine art illustrator residing in North East Scotland. Her intricate line work is influenced by the classic Victorian illustrators, pop surrealism and underground culture displaying a classic vibe with a modern twist.
