A mermaid and merman intertwined under the sea. Tales of mermaids speak of our fascination with the mystery of the sea. Being a strong swimmer who can spend hours in the sea and a certified scuba diver, I certainly have shared in the fantasy of becoming a mermaid, and leaving the earth to dwell in the deep.
Fifth in the "Sacred Love" series - a visual celebration of the magic, power & healing of sensuality and love; a return to that fairy tale-like moment of sweetness and connection that can be experienced, no matter how fleetingly, in romantic relationships.
The artwork itself is 22.5"X19.75", but it comes with a black frame and approx. 2" of double matting, white over navy blue.

Born in the USA, but I grew up in Chile. That land of wine, poetry, and magic inspired in me early on to create my own visual language. I call it “visual poetry”: people, landscapes and objects selected and stylized to capture an emotion. Back in the USA, in Nebraska, the solitude of endless skies and prairie drew me within to my own realms of imagination. Even though I have a Minor in Art as part of my Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, much of my work is self-explored. I got my MA in London, where I was inspired by the great masterpieces, in particular, that of Impressionistic and Post-Impressionistic artists from whom I've "borrowed" some of my techniques. Here in Los Angeles, California, where I currently reside, I continue my search to give visual expression to the inner experience of our outer world. I'm inspired by the beautiful diversity of people, the variety of environments and the vibrancy of the art scene that currently surrounds me .
