Hannah Fraser is a professional Mermaid, ocean environmentalist, performance artist and model. She has been fascinated by the mermaid myth since she was a tiny child, creating her first tail when she was only 9 years old, avidly swimming around her pool to practice freediving and breath hold. Working as an artist and model for many years, she now devotes her time to creating exquisite handmade mermaid tails and traveling the world performing as a mermaid for film, television, advertising, events and environmental activism. She and David Rastovich, (pro-surfer) organised the Taiji 'paddle out' in the killing bay of Japan where thousands of dolphins are slain annually.
My childhood dream has become a career! Keeping my vision over the years I now travel the world to exotic locations being filmed and photographed as a mermaid. I was drawing mermaids before the age of 3 and have continued creating mermaid art to this day! At age 9 I made my first mermaid tail out of orange plastic material. The heavy waterlogged tail helped me develop a strong dolphin-style of swimming!
In 2002 I created my second mermaid tail, a fully functional tail much faster than my childhood one. The unusual construction was a plastic boomerang, 2 coat hangers, flippers and a lot of duct tape inside wetsuit material! A true Aussie mermaid!
