Since October 2014 I have been part of the Turps Correspondence Course, an intense, online, critical dialogue between myself and a painter-mentor.  The brainchild of Brit artist Marcus Harvey, who founded the Turps Art School in London, this course has challenged me to push my work in new directions.  The first year felt a little like freefall – letting go completely only to rein myself back in.  Not only have I gained the confidence to move forwards but I have also become part of a talented and diverse group of  painters.
