I was featured in the Hudson Star-Observer last week!
Before I started painting professionally, I was an elementary art teacher. I enjoyed teaching and working with children (most days). However, over time I became envious of their creativity time. So I reluctantly left that job to make time for my own creative endeavors. I occasionally run into a previous student and enjoy seeing where life has taken them.
This happened in a big way last month when I got a call from the local newspaper to interview me. To my surprise and delight, the journalist was one of my former students! Caleb Fravel was a fifth grader the last time I saw him! At the risk of sounding like everyone’s favorite aunt, he really has grown into a nice young man, and an excellent writer. I really enjoyed the article he wrote for the Hudson Star-Observer. His editor must have enjoyed it too, because his article was featured on the front page of the newspaper!
