May 2005 - Two Australians moved to Tuscany where they planned to live for two years. Two weeks later their dogs, Snowy and Dermott, arrived. Seven years and a property purchase later, they're still here.
A while back I was fed up with my tight, fiddly work, so I pinned some very big pieces of paper to an easel and went to work with charcoal or Chinese ink. Putting my shoulder into it felt extremely liberating.
