The artist Maaco painted her body in a nude painting at the home of her former boyfriend after the two split up in 2012.
She then decided to put her work out into the world, and put it out in a way that her former lover would appreciate.
Now, she is looking to get her work into the hands of others.
The artist is seeking $10,000 from anyone who wants to help.
“I wanted to show that it’s not that you can’t paint yourself beautiful,” she said.
“You can do it.
I wanted to let people know that you are human and there is beauty in what you create.”
The painting she is about to put out for free will feature a human head.
It is being done by Maaco’s friend and fellow artist, Jody Covington.
She is hoping the painting will go on display in the city of Dublin, with the intention of getting more people to view it.
“It’s a piece of art that I think will inspire people to come out and support the cause of free expression,” Ms Covingston said.
