Having missed out on art school by one place I accepted my first-round offer to complete a Bachelor of Education in secondary art teaching. While I initially had some misgivings about it, I soon came to appreciate the benefits of becoming an art teacher. With Christine as my role model I realised that it was possible to be a teacher and an artist. Furthermore, teaching offered the prospect of thirteen weeks of paid holidays a year. What wasn’t to like? And so began my career as an art teacher and, over the long haul, an artist in my own right.
