Aquamarina the Mermaid by WinonaCookie

Aquamarina and her cuttlefish companion, Fernando, like to jet about the briny deep in search of adventure and new friends.

This collage of Aquamarina and Fernando, off for a jaunt has been constructed of painstakingly hand cut and assembled vintage images on 140 lb. handpainted watercolor paper and is accented with stamped coral, walnut ink and a real seashell. It is intended as a companion piece to “Octopus’s House, Undersea”.

When Ramona Szczerba (a.k.a, Winona Cookie) is not being a psychologist in private practice in San Diego,she enjoys creating whimsical children’s illustrations in watercolor, but also loves working with collage and assemblage. Her artwork and short stories have appeared in several publications including The Steampunk Bible and can be seen at Originals available – check for availability.

    Oh Yes. Stunning. This piece reinforces one of my own longstanding rules about art. Every work of art should have at least one fish. Great work

  • A rule to live by, Quantum. Thanks so much!

    I could spend a long, long time in your gallery, reading and studying the images for all the fantastic detail. I decided to pick this one and use it as my ticket back. Otherwise, I would just fav them all. I’ll keep your gallery on hand, as one of my favorite “sets”…

  • Melanie, that is so sweet! Thanks for making my day :-).
