‘Oh, I can’t wait to tell my friend that I was photographed for a blog! She’s my age but she’s a real fashionista. She’ll be so jealous!’
‘I’m a lawyer working in tax law.’
What do you like most about him?
‘His art and he’s got style.’
What’s the nicest thing she’s ever done for you?
‘Looked after me – we’ve been together over 30 years.’
What’s been your biggest challenge as a couple?
‘Oh, we’ve had a few problems over the years. I guess dealing with me – it’s not easy being an artist. It’s a very hard profession. In your twenties, it’s kind of exciting but as you get older and if you haven’t become famous, it gets harder and harder to keep carrying on. Everyone I know has problems. Everyone in their twenties thinks they’re going to be famous and have this fabulous lifestyle but it doesn’t work out that way for 99% of people.’
