ARTIST Andy Warhol, predicted that everyone will have 15 minutes of fame. Well, talented artist, Mary O’Sullivan, 43, from White’s Street, will have 22 days of fame.

Her art exhibition, My Colourful World is currently showing in the Bishopstown Library, Wilton, until October 26. “My friends wanted me to exhibit my paintings,” says Mary, who has cerebral palsy and who is a wheelchair user. “Isn’t it great?” says Mary, smiling proudly. This is her second solo exhibition.

Mary explores and celebrates her creativity with images of beauty, using vivid colour, capturing magical landscapes on canvas.  “I have cerebral palsy and I use a wheelchair all the time,” she says. “But when I paint, I sometimes forget that I am in a wheelchair and I imagine that I am exploring the skies and the seas that I am painting. “My art is very important to me,” says Mary. “And it is important to me that my ability to paint is seen before my disability.”

Mary’s  exhibition is running   until l October 26 in  Bishopstown Library, Wilton
