mermaid boyfriend
FREDERICTON, nb

Named after a Matthew Arnold poem, Mermaid Boyfriend features many Romantic ideals such as a love of nature, being overemotional, and a slight obsession with the supernatural. So one can expect natural dyes, sentimental cross stitches, and lots of spooky images knit into cloth or silk screened on underwear. Mel McMichael is apparently a huge nerd, and her textile practice is very diverse since she cannot decide if she wants to knit, weave, dye, or print.
