She says "I enjoy adding imaginative elements to observational studies and have taken the opportunity to include many imaginative references in this portrait, although the main figure is from life. The subject is a dramatist, performer, and artist whose most recent project was a large body of artwork made from tools. Many of his plays and also a mural have been about the legendary 1950's Glaswegian comic strip 'Lobey Dosser', and his twa legged horse."
