Please tell us a little about how you got started in coloured pencil art.

My love affair with pencils started with Derwent Coloured Pencils in school and my fervent desire to own the coveted box of 72. The box I never achieved but I gradually bought all the pencils one at a time and I still have them. I used them on and off and did my first serious drawing in coloured pencils while doing graphic design unit at university. I ended majoring in printmaking and textiles, then headed off travelling and a varied career in hospitality and education.
