What I learned from my mentors...

I met David Llyod when he purchased one of my water colours. He talked about painting from the heart and the head together - paying attention to my emotions while thinking about the painting. I listened carefully to what he liked about my work and his encouragements. David is a well known artist and respected art collector - so I am keen to learn from him. He told me he was once a primary school teacher - lucky kids!

He also showed me the new studio being built where he can do art. Click here to see the video clip of the visit. I will remember these moments forever!
