I began as a painter/designer/arts educator. I retrained to teach dance, managing to make lots of choreographic mistakes over 15 years. Over the last 20 years I have explored digital technologies.
I spent all my working life trying to maximise hours in the day to attend to all things education. Now I’m ‘retired’ I suddenly have the opportunity to do other things; creative things, domestic things, political things. Anything and everything takes my interest (pretty much). So I’m finding plenty to do, see, contemplate and critique.
Who knew that I would have a garden? Who knew I would find myself attracted to knitting in all its forms? Who would have guessed I would become more interested in domesticity and community? Who knows where any of this will take me?
It’s been a couple of years since I started this blog. I’m surprised at who I have become. I’m even more surprised at the way my work is shaping in these early days. And I’m learning to accept the direction I’m headed in. No angst, no pressure, just loving what I’m learning!
