Professional artist. I sell art on eBay, Etsy, Fine Art America, Daily Paint Works, EBSQ and Zazzle (all online websites) and have shipped artwork all over the world. I also garden, raise animals and attend rock concerts whenever I can.
Please tell us about yourself and your family:
I have 5 (8) kids, Bryan, Sam (Betsy), Lisa (Jeff), Kristy (Darel) and Victoria; 7 grandkids (Louisa; Kale, Jessa, Eve; Brayden, Brooklynn, Aurora) with 2 more on the way. A perk of my school job is I get to see my grandkids everyday at school.
What is your philosophy of education?
You’re never too old to learn or go to college. When I graduated high school, there weren’t many opportunities in the art field. After raising most of my family, I decided to go to college for the very first time. I enrolled at Northeast Community College in the fall of 2003 and graduated from Wayne State College in May of 2009, carrying a GPA of 3.69 to 4.0 for all six years. Victoria, my youngest, and I spent many nights doing homework together. I’ll always be grateful for the opportunity to attend college, even though, for me, it was later in life.
