As a father of three I feel it’s important to encourage my children to be creative. As a child I was always drawing and spent many hours happily creating. Now, many years later, I work in the oil industry which stifles creation and individuality. My eldest child is approaching the end of his education and looking for a future career and I believe it is important that my children follow their heart and pursue a role in life that will entertain them as well as pay their way in life. One Sunday afternoon, as a form of encouragement I sat and sketched ‘Rockabilly’. This was the first time I had put pencil to paper in a very long time. I hope that it inspired my children as much as it did me.
