The Selkie

a mythical creature half human half seal

There are many tales of selkies, both male and female, who live on land for a time in human form. They fall in love with a human and may even have children, but always they return to the sea.

One of my all time favourite films is Song of the Sea which tells one of these tales through magical illustrations. My lovely logo was designed by my friends Elizabeth Pickett and Marcus Byron, using Song of the Sea for inspiration.

Although I'm drawn to selkies, the selkie of Selkie Ventures is not a seal at all, she is a cat. Selkie comes in the night for food and then disappears. She is not very sociable but sometimes I see a fleeting shadow and I know she brings me luck.
