« Mermaids provoke a very deep response from the viewer. I believe this is because humans have always wanted to possess some magic power from the surrounding animal world – like large feathery wings that would allow them to fly or a scaly tail to propel them through the water like a fish.
My mermaid seems surprisingly human because she is peacefully relaxing after a long day. Her face is peaceful, her dreams tranquil, her body’s position radiates calm and happiness. The painting captures these feelings. The feelings are contagious, drawing the viewer in to share in the joy of this imaginary world. It is comforting to find a small corner of life – a painting – a book – time alone - which gives us quiet and peace of mind. »
