The Little Mermaid

One of the best things about Indianapolis is Cafe Patachou. A self-described "student union for adults" they focus on fresh tasty food with local high-quality ingredients. They also have excellent artwork featuring local artists. One morning at the downtown Patachou we were lucky to discover Emma Overman

We were instantly attracted to her dark-yet-vibrant style and beautifully distorted characters. Recently on a studio tour we found one of her pieces that we just had to take home - The Little Mermaid

The Mermaid, painted on birch coupled with a vintage frame and deep colors, stole our hearts.
