Ghostship Mermaid Evolution


Nearly abandoned two years ago, it's taken countless hours of awkward and uncomfortable positioning on studio floors, Twister-like stretching and several long days with even longer nights, but a few months ago I finally finished my 4-ft x 5-ft wood panel Ghostship Mermaid mural that I first started in 2011. A triumphant victory dance later ensued. This painting (seen here) was one of my first attempts with oil and well, one of my first attempts with regard to art in any capacity. When I sat down to simply "finish wood carving the scales" it quickly evolved into a daunting yet rewarding progression of the entire piece... and I couldn't be happier with the result.

Cherokee | Drawing Progress

As a woman of esteemed Cherokee ancestry, I've wanted to express and create a more spiritual atmosphere to my art for a long time. One that specifically depicts my bloodline... the strength, courage and exemplary virtues of some of the women I've been fortunate enough to know in my life.
“The Cherokees did not separate spiritual and physical realms but regarded them as one, and they practiced their religion in a host of private daily observances as well as in public ceremonies.”
