Natalie Irish of Texas has created portraits of the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe by kissing her canvass, according to reports by several international news sites on Wednesday, August 17, 2011.

Based on reports, Irish grabbed the attention of the world by making portraits with her lip print style of art. After her portraits were uploaded to the Internet, Irish has been getting fan mail and print orders from all over the world. Her name and art by kiss have been published across national top media blogs, including Good Morning America, Time and Glamour.

I still don’t think I’ve comprehended it,” Irish said. She never intended to be famous and describes her popularity now as “insane. It’s so insane.”

Recent reports mentioned that Irish  had to deal with Type 1 diabetes. Before she discovered lip printing, she was diagnosed with the disease in a hospital. With the help of insulin, she was able to concentrate on her art works.  She practices in every artistic media and tries to keep her chronic disease in the back of her mind.

Dennis Bateman, her husband, always knew that Irish‘s unique lip prints would make it big. “You cannot make your artwork masculine”, he said in a statement.

“Nobody owns an idea. You can have an idea but as soon as the world knows, it’s no longer yours. But from now on, if anybody else ever does this, it will be a woman”,Irish added.
