Tessa


"I'm a retired nurse. And a very mature student!"

Tessa was sitting outside on a warm evening with some friends. She agreed to be photographed without hesitation, but joked 'this might be because I've had a glass of wine'.

"I'm joining a course - Visual Studies. I don't miss nursing at all"

"My strongest memory from childhood is my mum's garden. It was beautiful. I can remember the smells, the colours, everything. It's all there. It left me with a love of nature that's never gone away. I would hate not to be able to enjoy all that. I am afraid of ever getting some kind of long term illness that stopped me being able to walk, or ride my bike, or explore life..."
