"My mermaids tell a story. They begin with a pearl of an idea based on culture, emotion, or reflection of the human experience. Each mermaid is researched to pair her with geographically accurate aquatic fauna. She is depicted not just to display her fantastical form, but to allow her as an individual rich in character and complexity to introduce herself. They are an exploration between human and animal, between ourselves and our imagination."
