Despite my love of taking photos of the female form underwater, it’s a little known fact that I studied painting and drawing at art school, graduating with a Fine Arts degree more than 20 years ago... I spent a few years as an art teacher in schools too before I chose happiness over a monthly salary. In those brief years teaching I was creative every day but never for myself, not finding the energy or drive for anything outside of work. I’ve thought about this a lot in the last few days whilst I can’t leave the pens and ink alone. Life may be a struggle sometimes but I’m smiling!
