Lovely lady, who is passionate about her subject. But she discouraged me away from painting realistically, saying there was no need for 'chocolate box art now that we have cameras.'
Ten years later, trying to break into studio art as a concept artist, I find I need to be able to do very realistic matte painting for backgrounds, and have to go back and learn everything I avoided because of her advice.

Had Ms TC for Art History in my final year at oats and she was awesome. I knew nothing about the subject, now I'm studying it for my Masters at uni and working at the Auckland Art Gallery. Thanks!
