Soul Mermaids 30/60 cm
One of the more recent paintings and part of the mermaid collection Soul Mermaids was completed in February 2020 to celebrate Valentine's Day’. It is acrylic on canvas with glitter and a collage of shells, starfish, seaweed, fabric, beads and gemstones.
‘The idea came to me for this piece back in November 2019 when I was asked to create an artist's impression of an up and coming Gold Resort project. It was an odd request considering the style of art I produce and had little experience of this kind. Undeterred though I went along with the project management team to view the resort and discuss plans and whilst there was shown the restaurant and pool area which begged for an interior designer to get their hands on it. So many walls to fill and looking at the outlay immediately envisioned a plush design displaying original artwork of oceanic themes in greens, blues and purples. Beautiful drapes and panelling in similar glittering tones.
This was painted as a small sample for a much larger piece with that project in mind.
