‘I am a fabulous mum, pretty decent cook, lousy gardener and practicing procrastinator. I am a hug-a-tree-save-the-whales-and-don’t-waste-water kind of person and have been told I would have made a great hippy.
Nowadays I am an artist but this wasn’t always so. Now, I could say that being an artist has been my lifelong passion, that I was drawn (pardon the pun) to portraying animals by some mysterious or overwhelming force. I could say that I am an art school graduate with years and years of experience behind me….yes I could say all of that but I won’t because none of that is true…this is….
Art had always been an interest of mine. I could wander an art gallery for hours, read books on art and I even dabbled a little in my younger days, producing one or two very average paintings and a crude but interesting sculpture of a fist that was pounded out of a piece of sandstone. I enjoyed doing arts and crafts and making things with my 3 kids. I helped out doing arty things at the local primary school and decorated the sets and programs for the Spalding Drama Group (I was a bit of an amateur thespian and singer and this was a very small town (around 250 people)…we all chipped in) but that was pretty much as far as it went.’ – Terry Jackson
