Jenny Devlin

My piece "The Musician" was a part of my Advanced Higher folio, being a part of my theme "All around Me", my father became my muse in a lot of my work. I have a strong admiration for him. His whole life he has been a hard worker, excellent musician and above all loving parent. I have been adopted since birth, and I feel because of that family is exceedingly important to me and influences a lot of my work. Although he is my adoptive father, we have always been incredibly close and will continue to be. The door in the background represents his busy lifestyle, he is always on the go to help our family, but it also adds to the symbol of the harmonica, which represents his love for music. It is very much a huge part of his life and he is going places with it, recently forming a band with friends.
