Artists train the next generation of artists. To the uninitiated, this system might seem mysterious, even bizarre. Communities of idiosyncratic creative individuals pass on a lineage that stretches back to some French caves, further perhaps. A life spent as an artist is remarkable enough. A life spent as artist and as an educator of future artists is extraordinary. This essay is a tender reflection of the joy and honour of being one link in the chain.
