This is the most ambitious piece I’ve made to date. I’ve made the body of the mermaid out of the shapes of small fishes. I’m pleased with the movement and the overall effect.

Although not produced in response to any particular poem or story I have interpreted the mermaid as in some ways representative of people who don’t have one space that they feel is natural to them.

I have spent the best part of three months making the piece and I feel that I’ve learnt a great deal as well producing a final piece which I feel proud of.
