"la sirena" means "the siren" literally. In Spanish and Italian it means "mermaid" and is used to describe a strikingly beautiful woman. In this series of intaglio prints I experimented with color to portray the feminine mystique with high energy, & sexy overtones. The siren can be seen negatively as a warning about the power or lure of the female. Instead I intend the image to portray her confidence in knowing who she is & how she wants to live her life. The colors and movement in the prints are intended to display an optimistic, playful spirit.
