i became an art teacher because i loved working with people and art.
during the summer (and year round) i do very little art wise...i keep
dabbling in new things (which is my favorite). getting ready to work
with airbrush stuff, just got off a watercolor kick and rebuilding a
house keeps me busy.

I started out going for a nursing degree. A college counselor tested us
professions and aptitudes in certain fields and I found I had ability

persuade me to change my major...since I would have to live at the
with a bunch of girls. The boys dorm was on campus near the student
was too young to retire as a coed. It paid off. I met my husband
BTW, I did get a nursing degree 18 years later. Then returned to
art. Still married to the guy I met at age 16! Presently, I paint and
juried exhibitions all around the country and have had my work
published in 3
books. So, art wins!
