Divided loyalties in the arts & crafts fields have me in constant catch up mode. Painting is my first love. My first sight of the centre inspired me greatly. Social comment is my favourite subject quickly followed by landscape. Making pottery (which help pay for my other needs) is still something I enjoy – the feel of clay is almost sensual, and I can listen to RN as I work. Paintings are done to opera and violin concertos belting out. My third love – and the most difficult – is writing, and for some strange reason, best achieved to the drone of the tele! With only one book published and many others waiting, apart from all the paintings I have on hold, I will have to crack the 100 mark! – at least. I’m approaching it slowly and love working in the arts fields.
