've always been an artist. From a very early age, I would draw and colour and paint. I knew then that I wanted to grow up to be a professional artist. Back then, I didn't know how tough it would be to do so. I grew up, got a job, and life got the best of me. Every now and then that little voice in the back of my mind would whisper to me, and I'd pick up a pencil or paint brush and create something just for the thrill of it.
It wasn't until I was thirty that I had the opportunity to go to university for my Fine Arts degree. (It was something I'd always wanted to do.) I loved going to class, learning new skills, meeting like-minded people, and challenging myself with a new and better project. It was a busy time: being a mom, working two jobs, attending school full-time (working on my assignments into the wee hours). Oh, but it was exhilerating! It was the first time in my life that I felt I belonged.
Years later, I know that I am on the right path. The jobs I took and moved on from all contributed in teaching me skills that I now use as a business owner and instructor. Unique opportunities, interesting life lessons, and even new friendships have come my way, simply because I've chosen to follow my heart - my passion. Sure, I've had to make sacrifices (as we all do) but the pleasure of waking every morning to be the person I want to be, and do the things I want to do, far outweigh any so-called sacrifice. I've learned that worrying about money or anything else is just a wasted emotion. Time and time again, the funds, material and/or people I've needed have miraculously appeared. This, in itself, has kept me humble and believing that I have found my purpose. I love creating things, I love art, and I love teaching!
