For six years during the 1960s, Winnie Fitch did countless illustrations for Children's Protective Services of the Mass. Society for protection of Children.
Winnie's work appeared on all manner of communications materials, from information flyers and brochures to Christmas cards to newsletters.
At the same time, Winnie was providing Filene's, an historic Boston department store, with children's fashion illustrations.
These ads sometimes afforded Winnie the opportunity to draw what her husband John Houston describes as "her favourite life-long subject..."
Years later, Winnie continued creating charming mermaid images, which are available as digital prints from her online store.
