|Nautilus Art Print|
Jewel has a special affection for color and line quality. She also has, "a strong aversion for things that could touch me when I swim." It's her hope to, "use the first to over come the second." But whether or not she can swim with sea life, she certainly has a talent for painting them.
This is what she has to say about her, Nautilus Art Print (right)
A close cousin to the octopus, the nautilus has his beautiful striped shell to protect him as he jettisons around the ocean. His prehistoric eyes work like pin hole cameras, open to the surrounding sea. If you want to see nautili, you have to dive at dawn or dusk.

Jewel has also created a series based on "Hellephants" (below). They're simple and charming illustrations that started as a simple commission and has taken on a life of its own. (As all good art does.) To see more of these delightful, whimsical and fun illustrations, you can check out Jewel's Etsy store at:
