Hannah Fraser is a passionate, driven adventurer, with an ability to emanate a gentle feminine power in the most challenging conditions. She is credited with inventing a whole new vocation, becoming the first ‘Freelance Mermaid’, working as an ocean environmentalist, underwater performance artist and model. Fascinated by mermaids since she was a child, she created her first tail when she was only 9 years old. She now creates exquisite mermaid tails and travels the world performing underwater as a mermaid for film, television, advertising, events and environmental activism. Hannah uses her unique link to the ocean to inspire and educate people on the importance of marine life. She is a strong role model of self empowerment for young woman across the globe who see that she has made her dreams a reality, no matter how unlikely the odds!
Hannah has been working on creating groundbreaking imagery showing the connection between human and sea creatures for over a decade. She has swum fearlessly with Tiger Sharks, Great Whites, Whales, Dolphins, Manta Rays, Whale Sharks, Seals, and many more animals in the open ocean. She says “Being in the ocean is where I feel the most free and expressive. A mermaid’s gift is to inspire people to rekindle their relationship to nature, and a way to communicate the environmental issues that face us at this point.” Hannah is currently working with Emmy Award winning cinematographer Shawn Heinrichs to create mind-blowing imagery that captures her unique connection to marine life in an upcoming documentary.
