I love the sea and mermaids are such a lovely thing to create.
I painted a mermaid scene on clayboard and enhanced the texture using heavy embossing powder and embossing powders. Painted using watercolor and metallic paints.
Then a bit of photoshop enhancing...

- I was raised in Long Island, New York and in my early twenties, moved to Manhattan and worked there for many years in the computer field. I have been an artist as long as I can remember. I started painting in 1983 while living in Princeton, New Jersey. I found lots of inspiration when we moved to Hong Kong for my husband's work. Five years later, we moved to Toronto. We returned to New England in 2002 and I have enjoyed all the creative and inspiring resources that surround me. The Lord has blessed my life with a wonderful family and many gifts.
