I recently had my work exhibited upstairs in Foam Café [Great Strand Street, Dublin] I was delighted that they had kept them hanging up for over a year. Although I was gutted to find out that someone had stolen one of my paintings. I’m not working at the moment, as I’ve taken time off to look after my daughter. I don’t have any ill feeling toward Foam Café, as they gave me the opportunity to get my work shown to the public. What angers me is that someone would take it upon themselves to steal art work, when the artist themselves are struggling to make money. I know I speak for a lot of artists out there.
I wanted to get this out there, to anyone who sees this painting hanging up, it’s stolen! Shame on you, I hope karma bites you in the arse!!!
