BEGINNINGS

March 17, 2015

 

I remember watching a student working with water-colour. I had joined an evening drawing class to in order to find a way of producing sketches of some costumes designs. I watched as the colours wandered into each other forming a shape and eventually forming an image.

 

I decided I wanted to learn how to do this. BUT this was more than just a decision, it was more like a 2AM ‘can’t sleep’ thought “I MUST LEARN TO PAINT” that would not go away.

 

The next day I went to the local TAFE and asked about classes, showing them some photos I had taken in Scotland, and my sketches.

 

I thought I was applying for a weekly evening class in painting.

 

Two days later I received a letter saying I had been accepted in full time study…. what to do?

 

I realised it was worth trying at least, so I enrolled. “Do you want to do print making and sculpture?” “What is that?” was my reply.

 

This was the beginning of a wonderful adventure.

 

I took to painting like a duck to water, found out how fascinating sculpture and print making could be, and was introduced to the wonders of good design. I later taught in the design school at CoFA-UNSW.
