If you, like me, work a full-time job to keep things going, don’t forget to make time for your dreams. Even though I have been working as an arts educator for 21+ years, my dream has always been to work as a full-time artist. My art has changed dramatically over the years, as I am an avid student, and love to learn new techniques and media. In the past several years, I have focused on surface pattern design. This has worked out well for me, because it has been something I can stop and start on, working around my busy schedule. Surface pattern designs also continue to mesmerize me. I always feel such an accomplishment when I finish that seamless repeating pattern. It’s almost like magic!
I would encourage you to find what feels like “magic” to you, and create time to indulge in that activity. Happy creating!
