By the time both of my youngest children and two of my mokos were at school, I had made the decision that I was going to work towards bringing in an income that was time-flexible, capitalised on my talents/abilities and above all –I was not going to settle for less than working at something I enjoy/love! A good friend of mine (and her very patient husband, thanks Biddy and Al) offered me space in their rumpus room to use as a studio and the key to their house so I could have daytime access, an offer that I very gratefully accepted. I began collecting old photo-frames, used/unwanted canvasses and off-cuts of plywood to use for my paintings.
