Sharks and Mermaids

My work for the past three years has been rooted in the narratives, symbolism, and illustrations of Fairy Tale literature. My Deepest Seas series of sharks and mermaids is a continuation of my Beauty and the Beast exploration. The mermaids in my paintings are majestic, beautiful and enchanting heroines; the beasts are their aggressive, carnal, sexual counterparts. It is only through accepting each other’s differences, that they can fall in love and fully enjoy their sexuality.
