About the Author
Datz began her career as a sculptress and exhibited regularly in one-woman and group shows in Manhattan, New Orleans, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, and Martha's Vineyard. In 1978 she established Margot Datz Designs, specializing in murals and architectural trompe l'oeil, decorative painting, and interior design. She has created murals for a number of children's hospitals, dozens of prominent businesses, hundreds of homes, and the Martha's Vineyard Steamship Authority Ferry Terminal, which receives over one million tourists and travelers annually. Datz also creates original paintings, exhibits annually, and is a well-established island painter.
Enamored and bemused by the New England region, Datz developed her own indigenous iconography based on lighthouses, sailors, fishermen, mermaids, and their interplay with the great blue sea. Her archetypal approach to her surroundings addresses humorously and compassionately contemporary living and loving dilemmas as modern folk.

Every page depicts a different mermaid and eloquently describes a correlating life lesson with poignancy and humor. The lessons offer the modern woman sound advice in dealing with her various struggles. Often feeling like fish out of water (or Mermaids out of water), we strive to fit-in - to be all things to all people - to strike a balance in our hectic lives where we're expected to wear many hats simultaneously and wear them all fabulously.
I immediately recognized myself in several of Margot Datz's mermaids and saw my girlfriends in many of the others. I am ordering a copy for every wonderful woman in my life!
The profound wisdom inside was thought provoking and worth the time but short and sweet .Beautiful art work.
