I am very proud to say that I have been able to have at lease 4 shows, the
number has gone up to six the past two years, and teach High School art at
the same time. Teaching puts me in a good schedule. I get home in time to
take my dog for a walk, get rid of the crap I aquire I accumulate during the
day, and then to the studio for two to four hours. My work is inspired by
what I do during the day. Teach Art! My students know I am a working artists
and are inspired by my expriences. I can bring the reat Art world to them as
well as put them in it. It took a couple of years to get the two to work. At
first I had the tremendous battle of artist vs. teacher.
Good Luck finding your way. If your heart is there it will happen.
