Oh Ms. V!

I am so glad you are able to follow your passion for art and do what you love to do. Your happiness is important and doing something that you don’t like will make you unhappy and bitter.

Your work is astounding and veru desirable! You have varried styles and quite eclectic!

As for me, I really did not have any strong or dying desire to pursue art. Believe me, I fluctuated from wanting to be an airplane pilot, a lawyer, architect or engineer. I did not think of being a nurse, really. I decided to be a nurse a few hours before I got dressed to register for college. Then I was accepted to every college in our province. I was sort of academic but not nerdy at all. I was very young when I went to college. I was fifteen and as fickle I am now, imagine how I was then!

No I never really wanted to be a Fine Arts major. I come from a very academic family and quite competitive. We never really thought of fine arts as a profession but rather a dilettante activity. I like it that way. All my brothers and sisters pursue an artistic activity they desire but we are all quite academic. I am glad I studied nursing. I loved being an emergency trauma nurse and I LOVE LOVE LOVE what I do now, very mental, intellectual activity although there is an art to writing patient safety rules. It is a logical process and I like logic. Sometimes it is exhausting and very stressful and I do need to balance my schedule but I love my profession.

So I have no regrets. To me art is a leisure activity. If someone paid me a million dollars for my painting, I would not complain though.
