It was never my intention to become an artist or even an art teacher for that matter. My key strength at school was English and I always imagined I’d become a writer. It wasn’t until Year 11 that I took Art as a subject, a decision largely based on the fact that the Art department seemed like a place of refuge where interesting things were created by interesting people. It was a chat with one of the Art teachers while I was in Year 10 that clinched it for me. She was incredibly supportive. Such is the influence of teachers.
