What is a mermaid? It is you, reminding yourself that this mundane moment is a sacred moment.
I paint people outdoors, embodying the radiant, relaxed state of well-being that is our wild nature. No matter what is going on, i paint happiness, freedom, and inner power. This is my creative magic.
Isa’s subjects are both real people and timeless mythical archetypes. With the brilliant tropical colors that are her signature, isa paints a dancer as Maui the Hawaiian Superman, a female canoe paddler as Hotumatua the first Polynesian Navigator, her own daughters as mermaids, a couple relaxing on the beach as the gods whose lovemaking created the world.
Comments About isa’s Work:
“You have the most uncanny ability to access the “aumakua” of a person; when I look at your paintings, I can see the person’s spirit shining through as their most exalted and authentic Self. I love your paintings so much. You must live in an amazing world to be able to see so deeply into the beautiful soul of a human being.”
