Grace is a UK based artist and a self-proclaimed pencil fanatic. She has a strong passion for traditional art and frequently works in mixed media of watercolour, gouache and coloured pencils. Her artwork themes draw from a blend of both the natural world and fantasy worlds.
"My design for this bead is based on the concept of a traditional mythological creature in a modern-day world. In ancient Greek legend the Hippocampus is an aquatic creature with the upper body of a horse with the tail of a fish and pulls the chariot of the sea god Poseidon. In this iteration, I re-imagined this creature as it has come to be now: a human-bred strain popular as pets amongst children. Cute and stubby this little fantail ponycampus makes a jolly and easygoing first pet, happily swimming in the tanks of many a child's bedroom." ~ Grace
