8. Tell us something that we don’t know about you
When I was in my late 20’s, I was hit by a car in an accident and broke my pelvis in two places, had paralysis in my right arm and was hospitalised for two weeks. I had to learn to walk again and thankfully regained the use of my right arm so that I could paint again.
