Ariya is inspired by my 4yo daughter. It was her love of mermaids and the lack of representation that led me to create not only this for her, but other children like her who DESERVE to see their reflections. In real life, my daughter is playful, brilliant, mischievous, kind soul that loves dance, art, science, building things and climbing. She has an air of innocence that she uses to her advantage when shes in the mood to get her way.
