In 2019 I found myself searching for a way to paint a portrait of a woman, who was part real, part imaginary. I was fascinated with Mother Clap, a historical figure from 18th Century London, who ran a coffee house or ‘Molly House’ which was a safe place for gay men to meet.Pilloried for running such an establishment, I decided to celebrate this brave woman with a portrait. My ‘Molly’, with her enigmatic smile and confident gaze, urged me to paint again.
