Some say she was from Yorkshire, . . . but she was really from Wales.
She was blamed for all the bad hair in that region.
In 1897, she was forced to leave her country on a steam boat
bound for New York. By the time the ship had reached the harbor,
all of the passengers on board had acquired her " Bad Hair"
They were not amused.

I've had a busy last couple of months.
After my show at Merry Karnowsky Berlin with KillPixie, I painted "Molly Bad Hair"
for The Shooting Gallery. It was exhibited at The Aqua Art Fair in Miami during Art Basel.
