More to the story of the mermaid.. I was in art class @rileydogstudio with my art instructor Jennifer who will always be one of my most favorite persons.
Our project was to create some type of paper mache and Jennifer gave us free rein as to what that would be. I had wanted to make a mermaid for some time and set about making a frame out of fencing wire. In class and at home over a period of several months I layered paper, paste, paint and some shells and for the mermaids crown is handmade paper flowers that trail down her back like seaweed flowers.
The project was so much fun and my mermaid is a very large and happy installation in a room hanging from the ceiling. She is now for sale in Rebloom Company’s Hale-Home Collection at rebloomcompany.com.
I think she’ll be a welcome addition to a girls bedroom or as something quirky in a retail space or commercial setting.
