Above is a video I put together showing the creation of my latest personal mermaid tail nicknamed "Chester" after my original iconic mermaid tail.
Hey my fishes, courtney mermaid here!
I am an artist and content creator from Vancouver, Canada and I quit my day job as a character designer in the animation industry June of 2018 to pursue my love of make fully functional, highly detailed fabric mermaid tails!
It has been my mission since 2006 to create a vibrant, accessible, and fully authentic mermaid experience both in and out of the water.
The adventure began with a pair of flippers, some Spandex, and a dream. Once I knew it was possible to make a fabric mermaid tail, I was hooked (pun totally intended)!
Then came the painted mermaid tails and my first printed mermaid tails and before I knew it I had orders coming in from all over the world! 🌎
I had found my people and I had found my calling!
Through my YouTube channel I share my own mermaid adventures, aim to entertain/educate/inspire others, and document my life as a full time artist and content creator.
I am an ambassador for FINIS (www.finisswim.com) and I have my AIDA 1 freediving certification. I also belong to our local pod (community) of mermaids called Mermaids of BC.
Being a mermaid is about more than wearing a tail, it is an opportunity to see life from a different point of view, to appreciate the healing nature of the world around us, and to find ourselves again!
I can help make your mermaid dreams come true! 💖
