Our mermaids and dolphins, handmade in Coastal Virginia, are the ideal blank canvas to inspire your creativity.  Paint your own today!

We also have pre-made mermaids and dolphins that make great farewell gifts, gifts for visiting relatives or a memento of your time in Hampton Roads, plus a large selection of mermaid, dolphin and nautical gift items.

We can be extremely busy, so it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to make a reservation, even for just one or two people. We cannot guarantee space for painters unless a reservation is made. Reservations are required for groups of 8 or more.
