Sea Maids & Sirens
I have always been fascinated by stories of mystical creatures and mermaids are no exception. Last fall I took a "wall doll" workshop with Tasmanian doll artist Sue McMahon and with a few tweaks to the body pattern and the sculpting, the end result was a mermaid that I named " Calysta". To see how she came to be just click on the photo. I enjoyed the process of creating my first sea maid and have plans to make her some sisters. Why the title "Sea Maids & Sirens"? Well, in my "Merworld", sea maids are gentle and rather timid beings, while their cousins the sirens are the enchantresses of the deep who lure mortals to their doom. As with all things in nature, there is the light and the dark which makes things so much more interesting, don't you think?.
