Dirty Maggie Mae - The Beatles . The mural was painted at the Lock and Key Hotel in Liverpool by Paul Curtis Maggie Mae was a famous prostitute who plied her trade around Lime Street. She was immortalised in the song, Maggie Mae (no, not the Rod Stewart one!), which is a traditional shanty/skiffle number in Liverpool. The song was partially recorded by The Beatles and appears on their Let it Be album.

A mural of the stunning Audrey Hepburn painted by Liverpool artist, Paul Curtis for the David Myers Opticians in Southport, Lancashire. The beautiful actress and fashionista is depicted in a hat and sunglasses from the movie, Breakfast at Tiffany's. The mural was painted on roller shutters, which always presents problems for murals, due to the undulating surface. I am particularly proud of this one, as this is the style of painting I really enjoy the most.

Completed in summer 2019, the mural depicts an underwater scene with tropical fish and playful seals. It is likely that these species would never inhabit the same waters, but the fish were added to add spots of colour and in any case, there are 2 mermaids, so it was never going to be an accurate scene. The purpose of the mural was to add a bit of colour and fun to the area of the sun loungers and outdoor hot tub of the Hotel's spa. Thornton Hall Hotel is located in Thornton Hough on the Wirral.
