We are all Warriors!

As an artist, as a human being, as a woman I am a warrior in spirit. Many of us have learned to be. I had no idea as a small child that I would need to be – until I was bullied at school (once and thankfully only briefly by two girls who courageously later apologised and in a more subtle but equally intimidating non-physical way by many of the teachers – and that went on right through my school days).
