My career is far from a straight line, and yet it’s actually starting to look like a circle.
I graduated with a Communications degree wanting to be an event planner, but I decided instead to teach Pre-K to low-income families for two years. I loved my students, but I left teaching with the hope to make a bigger impact outside the classroom.
There’s a big white space above our living room bar cabinet that we’ve been wanting to fill for a while now. My intention was to paint something, but nothing came to mind.
Then sometime in May, we picked up our newest member of our family, Pork Chop! He’s a straight and shaggy coat Goldendoodle, and he took up much of the living room space by the bar cabinet and became my creative muse!
I finally put up paintings for the dining room that I started to work on last month! It’s a set of 2 18×24 canvas acrylic paintings inspired by graffiti art and the Chinese word “吃” that means “to eat”.
