This original painting, "Louisiana Mermaid" is the first of a series of beautiful black mermaids. Ten percent of all sales are given to the models in each painting, who are Jacksonville, Florida locals.
This series of mermaids started in June of 2020, shortly after the death of George Floyd. Protesting is not really my thing. I'm a lover, and a painter. What can I do to show that black lives matter to me? The simple answer is to love black people. And paint is my love language!
This painting series has given me the opportunity to connect with the black community around me. And I hope that these beautiful images can make you feel that love.
