    What talent and love went into the making of this doll. My girl is mesmerised by mermaids. I have been decorating her room with such nicitys as your doll. Its difficult to find fine art of mermaids that isn’t little mermaid or geared towards men and bars. I would love to gift her with such a doll.

    November 26, 2012
  25. I’ve adopted a little fish,
    Handsome and very cute,
    He swims in a delightful tank,
    But needs something new…

    This mermaid doll would be a joy,
    Company for my little fish
    He could see her sparkling from his tank,
    What a surprise, I’ll make a wish!

    And wait until my little nieces,
    See the little doll and the fish,
    I believe in the magic of Christmas…
    The mermaid will give her tail a swish!

    Please consider our enchanting house
    As a home for your Mermaid doll,
    To give her a place to stay for awhile,
    With a little fish to make her smile!

    I think this is magical that you are having this giveaway since mermaids have been the pretending favorite at our house lately. My little artistic 5 year old would greatly appreciate your handiwork. In fact, today she was being a mermaid “swimming” around the house teaching her little merboy brother how to swim, I love it. Thank you for sharing your beauty!

  54. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always loved The Little Mermaid. There was something about her wanting to explore and feeling trapped, that I could really relate to. It would be nice to have this wonderful doll on display at home in order to be reminded about what characteristics I really admire: bravery, independence and a strong will to go get what you want and where you want to be.

    I feel very connected to the sea – I grew up finding shells, swimming in the seaweed of the frigid Puget Sound, holding tiny crabs in my hands. I know what it is to smell salt water, to feel it deep in my bones – to look over an expanse of water and feel absolutely taken. I have four little children; four children who live in their imaginations, who soak up stories and have creativity pulsing through their entire bodies. They live in the mystery and magic of life. A mermaid speaks to all of these things – the depth of the sea, the dream-like imagination of a child, the mystery and beauty of our own minds. She would be treasured, played with – a momento of beauty, a thing that perhaps someday would become “real.” Thank you for offering this work of art – as an artist I know what it is to offer something like this – a part of yourself.

      Dear Jamie,

      Thank you so much for writing me. I enjoy reading your note and can relate to what you write. Reading your note, I can recall the salty seawater in my ears and back of my throat as a child whenever I was a step late in getting up from the ocean waves…yes, I love the sea. I spent my childhood weekends on a tiny tropical island of Pulau Pinang, so Puget Sound is very compelling yet exotic to me! Blessings + Love, Jzin
