Artist-turned-photographer who earnt a living as a designer and artist between jobs as a teacher.
Started out as a comic book artist (first underground in the 70s to mainstream in the late 80s) before teaching art & photography to teens. Moved into computers, web-design, photo-manips, etc. before returning to teaching in 2002 (as an English teacher).
In 2006 I temporarily lost my sight (right in the middle of a lesson with Year 11s), regained it but then started on the slow downhill decline that comes with MS... including pain, fatigue, vision & cognitive problems, and tremors & spasms. All of which makes drawing, painting and photographing very difficult.
I'm now sorta-retired because of the symptoms, so until I curl up into a gibbering ball... I'll try to get some art done... and get it up here.
