A lifestyle journalist Arlene Harris got in touch with me, looking for some interesting individuals to talk about their "2nd Careers".
It piqued my interest... and not because I'm a publicity hound or I even think about my paintings as any sort of double job (on top of my work as a Regulatory Solicitor with a large energy company in Ireland).
