All of the Happy Mermaid Designs were inspired by our love of the beach, sea life, and mermaids.
Here we share the story behind the design and what inspired its creation. Our t-shirts, art, apparel, gifts, and more are created to take you back to the coast and bring you happiness.
Our amazing artist and graphic designer, Laura L. Leatherwood, and creative writer, Cheryl Olmstead, love the beach and all the creatures that live in it. Aspiring to recreate that relaxed coastal feeling all year long, Happy Mermaid’s beach inspired clothing, gifts, art, and more was created.
It is our hope that when you buy a t-shirt, hang a picture of sea life on your wall, or drink that first morning cup of coffee, our designs will return you to the beach and fill you with happy memories.
If you can taste the salty air, feel the cool surf on your feet, and hear the waves as they hit the shore, our Happy Mermaid Designs have accomplished what we created them to do.
