My years here in Brisbane have been happy and fulfilled. The classes are well supported and artists have been attending my Studio a few years. In fact, one student has been here from the very beginning.
Not only have the classes enabled me to support myself, but teaching has given me a very fulfilled life. I love teaching. I achieve so much satisfaction seeing creativity blossom and grow. Frequently, someone will join a class never having done any drawing or painting for some years, often as far back as their schooldays. After a few hesitant lessons, a quiet confidence emerges and lovely work is produced.
An added bonus is that the artists who attend the Studio have become friends - to me and to each other as well. Creating a nurturing, supportive environment in the Studio has been one of my main aims.
As I write this, I am recuperating at my daughter’s after successful surgery last week. I am doing well and trying to behave and take it easy. (Not being allowed to drive for six weeks will be a challenge)
Thank you all so much for your friendship and support.
