Hello, I am Grace Mendoza, the CURATOR of this seaside gallery. From Dorado, Puerto Rico. Some already know us from Ambiente Creativo (my art school and studio), Gracious Gracie's, and Kukera Designs. Today I have the great satisfaction of starting to climb a new step in the business world. We continue doing what we are passionate about, CREATE, but this time adapting to the new markets and expanding the possibilities. Arriving here has taken us a lot of dedication and effort, which together with the experience that the years give us, enable us to be selective and realistic. Motivated by the interest of nature in the sea, there is, as many of you know, my fascination with the theme of sirens. So I do my thesis on the subject where I can take a deep hold on the subject. Mermaids District arises as a product of this personal need to create a niche for my internal siren and to drive my entrepreneurial spirit.
Now I expand on what makes us different.
In the Mermaids District, we have made a wide selection of thematic products. We know that the social media market is increasingly competitive and it is very confusing to buy online. From my own experience, it was very difficult to select articles and it took a long time to search. In Mermaids District we want to simplify your time so you do not invest in looking everywhere for what you like. So with much dedication, enthusiasm, study, and time, we have invested in preparing this space that we call Siren district so that you find in one place the most trendy at the time related to our common theme, our love for colorful art. We are a family business that believes in values, the conservation of the environment, gender equality, in the rights of women, of animals. We believe in peace and freedom of expression.

GRACE MENDOZA: MY HAPPY JOURNEY FROM CHILDHOOD DRAWINGS:
Since my childhood, I have been a doll lover. I always tried to draw them, but I wasn't able to do it right until I turned 18 when I went to an Art Summer Camp in Elsa, Illinois. That was my first formal art class. There, I discovered my drawing talents and also understood how important it is to get instruction for most of us who don't have a perfect innate spontaneity in drawing. After that "glorious" experience, and inspired by all my teachers, I decided to become an art teacher myself to be able to help other people like me. Still, this is a happy journey. A long one where I learn how to become a better artist every single day, discovering new techniques and how creative a person can become on this artistic journey using many different mediums. After 12 years of teaching art at my local art gallery, I decided to put aside my job and started to develop a line of characters which I called Gracious Gracie's Collection. They are inspired by my happy childhood and by every single little child and young-spirited woman who became my student. So far, so good, so I added a few of my oil paintings to my mostly digital artworks, and now turning again to the mixed media compositions, which I enjoy the most! It brings happy memories with my students at art school. There, acrylics, scissors, wood, and canvases were all over the place. Today, I sell at local art fairs, shops, and different platforms like Etsy, Redbubble, and Facebook. Please, enjoy and support our business. Thank you.
