Mixed Media - Acrylic on Canvas - 48 X 36
I have such a fascination for the ocean and all it’s inhabitants! Mermaids and goddesses have interested me since childhood! The first stories of mermaids appeared in ancient Assyria, in which the goddess Atargatis transformed herself into a mermaid out of shame for accidentally killing her human lover. In folklore, a mermaid is an aquatic creature with the head and upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish. Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide, including the Near East, Europe, Africa and Asia.
Maureen's work brings a new flavor and accent that transforms and is described as eclectic and transcultural. Her paintings are sold nationally by interior designers, art consultants, architects and contractors for residential and corporate projects.
