A Decade of Pearl
2018 was the year in which Pearl turned ten. The very first Pearl hangs in my studio and reminds me to paint from the imagination. Since her 'birth' in 2008 she has made many friends around the world. Pearl's eyes have been closed for ten years. In the next decade maybe she will finally wake up! Whether it's skateboarding through Sheffield, shovelling snow in Canada, grooming a bull in Spain, or sipping soda in a London train station, she's got plenty of appeal but there is also something sweetly goofy about her. Pearl epitomises feminine beauty and confidence, attracting friends from all walks of life. Occasionally you'll see her in a painting with the enigmatic Edmund but the two haven't met. If they do, will they set the world on fire?
