Each artist will create a different Venus who will explore different worlds.
While her appearance and her environment change, Venus always possesses the same inner qualities such as loving-kindness and compassion -- which are universal to all kids regardless of gender, race/ethnicity, age, or any other distinguishing factor.
The visual artists who have joined the Mermaid Brigade are an amazing mix of both new and experienced children’s book illustrators. Each of these women is deeply committed to using visual art as a medium for individual and social change. Read their complete bios here.
