Yesterday was a red letter day when I received my Certificate from the London Art College.  After months of working with Polly O’Leary I was thrilled to see I had gained a distinction.   This was only made possible with her amazing input:  her thorough, detailed and helpful comments to each assessment and unending encouragement made the whole journey such a joy.

I learned many new things while on the course, not least not to trust my own eye sight and to measure things!  And having been forced, a million years ago, to take O’level art a year early “to get it out of the way” and just scraping a pass, it has made me realise you are never too old to have a go at trying new things!

I do hope if anyone is considering the course, this will inspire them to have a go. They will be so glad to have done so!

With very best wishes to all at the London Art College,
