Her name was Christine. She was a painter and I was completely in awe of her work. She was a very accessible teacher who inspired enormous respect and affection amongst her students. She was very young, too, a mere seven years older than we were. This in part is what I found so inspiring, the thought that with determination and practise, I could be like her within an imaginable period of time. Suddenly I was able to imagine a different kind of future to the one I thought I was going to have, a world of creativity and personal expression.
