Medium: Acrylic-

Influence: I was drawn to paint fantasy uplifting flowers and behind and around the flowers I have added hundreds of different faces.

Influence:

I had a fun thought of ladies laughing/in shock whilst getting ready for a night out and wearing evening dresses and rollers accompanied by a poodle wearing rollers!

I asked some friends to wear rollers and act out my thoughts and from the photographs of this scene, I created "All Rolled Up" in my contemporary style.

I used acrylic for this scene as it works well with texture and indeed the free flowing painterly aspects of the abstract work included in the ladies dresses.

My father, RIP, regularly told stories about ghosts and sightings thereof close to Rineen, Co. Kerry, Ireland which is an area prone to fog and mist. This area is a favourite walking route by many and considered to be a mystical part of Ireland. These thoughts and the song "Diamonds are Forever" influenced me to paint Lady Ghost who has come back to life and of course she is wearing her diamonds …….
