In January of this year I published my first art book. This book is a collection of my doodle art and watercolor paintings. With each painting I have told a story from my life and/or personal experience from my journey on being an artist. I’m excited to share with you one chapter from my book. This week is Chapter Number 16: “Always Believe In The Impossible”.
In the years before I started my professional art career, I was an architectural drafter and then moved into construction management. During that time I would look at photographs of Las Vegas casinos and dream about either working on a design team or construction team building a casino. Although I loved dreaming about it, I never really thought it would ever be possible.
When Tim and I were living in Arkansas, he was offered a job in Las Vegas. He immediately accepted the position and we were both so excited to be moving.
Within a couple of weeks of moving to Vegas, I found a job working for a construction company. During my three years working for that company, I was on construction teams that did remodel projects in the Mirage, Monte Carlo, Planet Hollywood, and the Wynn. I also was a part of the new construction team of Showcase III which housed the Hard Rock Cafe on Las Vegas Blvd.
What I once thought was an impossible dream, became my everyday life for almost three years.
