Above is a video I put together in which I talk all about how I got started and became a full-time professional mermaid.
My fishes call me courtney mermaid!
I am an Autistic 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 become a full time professional mermaid! 🎉
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! 💖
