I am a 33 year old mature student. I am hoping to become a art teacher/artist once I have my degree. Art was a huge change in my life as I had spent the past 13 years working as a ventilation engineer. I was laid off when the economy crashed. It was at this point I picked up a paint brush for the first time since school. As I look back 2 years ago, loosing my job was a blessing in disguise.

I now spend most of my time with my family and I get to follow my new passion...Art.
