Story:

Much of my inspiration comes from Bali, the Land of the Gods. Ever since I can remember I have been painting the Mermaids. Their mystical world intrigues me.

On my first trip to Bali in 1997 whilst travelling to the island of Nusa Penida I dreamt of 2 mermaids swimming along side the boat we were on. Sometimes I'll experience an event yet it can be years before I paint it. This was one of those times.
