She is asked to explain the thinking and meaning behind the paintings which have an erotic content. This was in response to an article in an Aberdeen Journal with a photograph of the artist. It explained how local opinion was divided, and that the show was controversial because the theme of the show was the ‘Spirit of Sexuality’.
