I always liked making things with my hands when I was a child, so no surprise there :) Also I went to college, because that's what people do right after high school...better paying jobs, etc. I'm not a believer in a degree giving more credentials to a painter, but this is my first attempt at making a bio :)
First I studied Psychology, being interested in the topic and wanting to help people. But while in school, I was doodling and drawing in class, even selling hundreds of art cards and paintings. After three years of college, added Art as a double major, for the calling/passion got too strong. After graduating, I went on to be self employed. Discovering what I learned, finding my style, whether meaning is a need, and purpose...
