About the Artist

Sea Frances is an artist based in South Africa. 

She specialises in singing sailors to sleep, morphing into mystical beings and invoking the spirit of delight.

As a child she was deeply affected by Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid, who leaves her life at sea and mermaidery for a human soul. Unlike the Disney version, she dissolves into sea foam in the end. Enchanted by the ocean, Catherine moved to the coast for several years. Her fascination with myths and magic can be seen in her otherworldly work.
