This project has been underway for over three years. When the idea surfaced to produce another mermaid (the last one was created over 20 years ago), my creative mind went wild. I have built as many as a dozen different mermaids over my career and had always wanted to produce a special one in a class of its own, standing out from the ones that came before her. The opulence and magnificence I imagined in my own visionary mind could only be manifested with painstaking attention to details and there are many, many details to behold.
She reclines upon a great golden pile of jewels and treaures. The crowns and jewels are mainly hand crafted by myself but there are surprises like vintage jewellery, gemstones and 27 different types of beautiful shells from around the world.
After 3 intense years of devotion and hard work, I will be proud to present my lifesized Sculpture of "Oceana" - the Mermaid in the coming days. Watch this page or subscribe below to be alerted when she is fully presented. Meanwhile, you can see a sneak preview of her in the images below.
