“Oh fantastic Jane-what work ethic you have!
Packing so much in right to the end-…
I can only describe it as the catalyst
for setting a big shift into action somehow. ”

“When I opened my email announcing the arrival of the Mermaid Circus,
I couldn’t believe my luck! My 2 favorite artists were getting together to
teach a class celebrating my favorite subject, Mermaids.
It just had to be magical – and let me say, it is!…

I thank you both for all your fabulous inspiration and gentle instruction.
You have made my little art world a dreamy, fun and uplifting place to be in.
I never want to stop swimming in these creative waters!

“Jane and Teesha, your Mermaid Circus class has been nothing short of astounding!
I have loved every part of it over the last 8 weeks and can’t believe how quickly time
has flown! …The videos have given us a birds eye view into your studios,
arts and your busy, creative minds. They are treasures.

…You have nurtured a wonderful warm group of mermaids within Facebook!
It has been a safe place to share and meet new friends….
Thank you both for giving so much of yourselves to your mermaid clan.

I am totally thrilled to have been a part of this special group.”
Robyn W


Wow, I think, is the best word to describe the Mermaid Circus.
(Well maybe WOW WOW WOW is better!). Wow best encompasses the
anticipation and enthusiasm that I felt not only before the workshop started,
but all the way through, as well.

It also expresses the admiration I feel for both of the ringleaders, Teesha and Jane,
both of which I was well familiar with. And it was such a pleasure to be part of
such a fabulous group of artists, all mermaids/clowns/artists in their own right.
I was constantly filled with awe, wonder and total amazement during the
entire time and it will remain long into the future.

And there were thrills, and surprises around each and every corner.
This has been a truly extraordinary adventure into the deep. …


The techniques, tips, secrets, bits of wisdom
and encouragements were over the “big” top.

My brain is swimming with inspiration …
And my art table is full of many WIP, so much so that I have had to leave notes
with each one and a list of ideas that are just percolating …


A big wow to learning new, expanding my borders and unfolding my wings
(or rather fins). Mermaid Circus is definitely the greatest show on earth!!!

About your Ringmasters!

Teesha and Jane have very different artistic styles, but are creatively in sync.
They are both abundantly prolific artists,
crazy about color, drawn to positivity and deeply curious about the cute and quirky!

Teesha Moore

She’s a Creativity Icon. Her artwork and journals are quite simply, magnificent and have been included in a huge array of books and magazines. Teesha is the creator of ArtFest, JournalFest, FibreFest and Play Retreats! Publisher of Magazines, Designer of Stamps and Champion of the Quirky, the Different the Off Kilter. She is also on the Arts Commissioner Boards in her hometown of Issaquah.  She has taught workshops all over the world for the last 20 years.

Mermaid Circus is Teesha’s first online class and may be the one and only ( you’ll find out why in the Workshop!). The artwork and projects she dreamed up for the Workshop are astoundingly creative and will kick you into the upper inspirationsphere!

“People ask me what type of artist I am. I hate to say one thing. Even “mixed media” doesn’t do it for me.

I like to think that my specialty is creativity.

I like the process of it, rather than the end result. I NEED to make art. It relaxes me and energizes me at the same time.
I love ideas. and I have TONS of them everyday.

To me, making art is play. I don’t worry what others will think of it…I create from my gut. I let whatever is inside of me come out, so I step aside as much as possible so that can happen. I am always happy to share any idea or technique I know with anyone who wants to listen because it is all about creativity and if something I say can get someone to shoot off down a path of their own creativity, there is no greater joy for me. “

Jane Davenport

Jane Davenport is a gifted teacher who has created many phenomenally popular online workshops, DVDs, stencils and Art Lessons Supply Stash Series with Cloth Paper Scissors. Her first Mixed Media title arrive in 2015. She is a licensed and widely exhibited professional artist, and shares all of her experience with astounding generosity. Her down-to-earth approach will have you champing at the bit to try things you would never dreamed you could do .

Teesha writes: 
“When I first met Jane, I immediately knew she had that inner spark of bright light.  Her perpetual optimism is authentic and refreshing.  Her enthusiasm about life and art is HUGE.  She is someone you want to be around because she is so non-judgemental about anything…she allows you to be yourself and loves you just the same.  And on top of all of this, she is an incredibly creative artist who follows her heart and her intuitions.  She’s really good at what she does and has a work ethic that rivals my own.  For all these reasons, she is the only one I would have consented to do a collaboration with and it’s been a blast!”

Jane says:
” I empower people through creativity. I may look like I’m teaching people to draw and paint, but what I’m really doing is showing people how to defy their self-imposed gravity. The creative courage I foster spills into every aspect of a person’s life and confidence blossoms. I witness this in my classrooms every day. It’s why I love teaching so much.

I realised some time ago that art doesn’t have to be serious to be meaningful.

You can just simply love creating it.”
