I drew felt tip pictures and sold them to my family member for 10p each.
I won an award for my degree work and used the prize money to buy two tree frogs.
Panicked when I learned my mum had cancer and didn't make any art in my studio for days.
I immersed myself in sculpting and drawing to not focus on the bad things around me and discovered a new material to work with.
I won an award in London for my artwork and sold it for a lot more the 10p...and mum got the all clear.
