'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' looks into the power of popular culture and the styling that goes into creating a persona and shows each sitter in their most enhanced state.
Each painting contains a quote from a film, book or song chosen personally by the model to reflect something of herself.
The title, taken from my favourite Marilyn Monroe film, plays on the misconception of the ideal woman, as not one of the portraits are of a blonde. Marilyn herself, the ultimate female icon, being the embodiment of all that is feminine, is mirrored by each of the women portrayed in this series.
