As early as I can remember, I wanted to be a veterinarian. I have always loved all types of animals and the thought of helping them makes me happy. I made it through elementary, middle school, high school and 2 years of college before I changed my mind. After 2 years of Pre-Vet college education, my ‘dream’ shifted from Vet to Fashion Apparel Buyer.Yeah, big change! My degree changed to Marketing, which is what I graduated with, but my career took me down yet another path – International Trade/Export & Import. I am a licensed Customs-house Broker, which is the equivalent of a CPA for accountants. I’ve ‘done this’ for almost 30 years. It pays for my obsession – CREATING ART! Creating is a passion and something that I must do to keep my sanity and my head clear.
Hmmm…this is a good question. I ‘absorb’ inspiration from my surroundings. From a colorful truck going by, to a walk through a local hardware store. To a magazine ad, to searching the internet for ideas. To a song on the radio, or a new product or technique. There isn’t one source that I tend to gravitate towards.
