My earliest memories are at the family kitchen table amid the chaos of a big family drawing and painting. I never seemed to let go of the pencil or brush; it flowed into my lifelong passion for learning and teaching. Creativity inspires me - whether its drawing, painting, teaching, writing or cooking - it all celebrates the gift of life.
