SOHO SCENES 1993


In 1993 while living in New York I was invited to be the art consultant for a feature film The Portrait.
“In Soho I had an artist’s studio in a loft. Arthur Penn, who’d directed, Bonnie & Clyde and Little Big Man, was looking for an artist who could paint portraits and who also had a studio that would look good for a film he was putting together. After meeting me and visiting my studio I was selected. I attended script meetings because they had to adapt what they’d written to fit in with my lifestyle. The artist in the film was a painter who’d had trouble with her parents. The character had spent all her life trying to prove herself to her parents – and that was my life. So, little by little, the film became more about me, they even replicated my studio and borrowed all my paintings.
