Cover art for the book, "Magickal Mermaids and Water Creatures" due to be released in 2005. Book by D. J. Conway.
Thank you, Kimberly. I'm so glad you have connected with my work in this manner.I try to break stereotypical ideals with my images and I'm glad that I have succeeded to a certain extent. Again, thank you!
Thank you so much for creating such a realistic mermaid. It helps each of us to identify with the goddess when we realize that the stereotypes are not what makes true beauty. Lovely as usual, I've added this book to my amazon wishlist!
This is the highest compliment viewers can pay me. I strive to make my subjects appear real and tangible. I refrain from depicting people/fantastical creatures as objects of perfection. I want them to look and feel real--to mirror the imperfections that make us human so that we can more readily connect with the image. Thank you so much for the comments. This book will be published in 2005 by New Page Press. It will be an illustrated tradebook. It's always great fun to work with D.J.. Thanks again!
this full figured mermaid is just as or more prettier then these barbie dolls you see round here, well done and ill be looking for book
(Does the first comment dance) This is a simply gorgeous painting! The water effects are really neat and the memaid is so beautiful. It's nice to see a sensibly proportioned mermaid as opposed to all of the silicon inspired we see nowadys. What kind of book is this gonna be? I'm definately interested. --Karen
