I trained as a Showcard & Ticketwriter when I was 16. I worked in retail and my own business before going into TAFE (Technical & Further Education) as a full time teacher for the last 20 years of my working life. I also taught Calligraphy and published 3 books on the subject. I married late in life at the age of 48 after travelling for 30+ years. I am now retired and enjoy many interests, one of them being photography.
