Mary Sullivan's Exhibition 'My Colourful World' a collection of oils on canvas and silk paintings.
Here is Mary's artist statement:
My name is Mary Sullivan, and this is my second solo exhibition. My first took place in 2017 and was called “Journey of the Imagination”.
I am very passionate about painting and the use of bright colours. My paintings are primarily oil on canvas, but I also like to paint on silk. I love to paint images with lots of sea and sky; it’s all about the brush strokes you can make while painting them. I also sign my paintings with my fingerprint which is unique. I have art classes every second week which I really enjoy.
I have cerebral palsy and use a wheelchair all the time but when I paint I sometimes forget I am in a wheelchair and imagine I am experiencing the sky’s and seas that I am painting. It is very important to me that my ability to paint is seen before my disability.
Exhibition runs for the month of October
