Distance Delivery Mentor Profile: Billy Wilson
No matter where you live in the world, you can study TLC’s New Zealand Creativity programmes through distance delivery. Distance delivery means you will learn to draw, paint, design and create from the comfort of your own home and receive one-on-one tutoring from one of our mentors, all of whom are practicing artists.
We spoke to Billy Wilson, 2017 and 2018 Parkin Drawing Prize finalist, and one of our distance delivery mentors.
Muhummad Ali once said, “He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.” He wasn’t the first to have said it, nor the last. The plain truth is that taking risks - even small ones - opens up a whole host of possibilities and understandings. It builds confidence, opens creative pathways and makes future success a real prospect.
Student, Christine Winbush, is no stranger to risk-taking though she’ll be the first to tell you that it doesn’t come naturally.

Getting your creativity out there
What do Jesus, Buddha, Leonardo, Einstein, Jacinda Arden and YOU have in common?
Creativity has its own rhythm. When you create things there can be a mix of chaos, frustration, insight and (if all goes well) the thrill of achieving something good. And then there’s a kind of cross-beat called ‘marketing’. Somehow you have to get your work into the ‘market’# so that you generate the funding that enables you to get back to creating.
