THE ART ANGEL – My Favorite Jobs

Lately, I’ve been thinking about this wild ride called life and all the different jobs I’ve had to support me and my true love…ART!

My favorite jobs were…

1) TWA Flight Attendant ~ Wow, did I LOVE that job. It suited me perfectly because I love people…I actually love serving people & love talking with pretty much everyone ! Where else on earth can you find a job with so much diversity? I also love the sky & clouds and I love to travel! I had plenty of time off to make art & play…it was perfect! Sadly, we were laid off.

2) AMERICA’S MOST WANTED TV SHOW ~ Yes! I was a “Hotline Operator” for AMW. I am a child advocate & have tiger mother instincts when it comes to protecting children & always watched that show for that reason. When I heard they were looking for operators & I jumped right in! Met John Walsh a few times at the studio & Xmas party… what a wonderful, kind man he is! I absolutely love him! I know you can see me on one of the old re-runs. It was a great job but after a year I had to quit because I was getting too depressed…you really need a thick skin to listen to all those horrible stories. I am just too sensitive.

3) ANIMATION ~ I love animation! So much fun! I worked at Mill Valley Animation, painting Gary Coleman, Smurfs and Pac Man cartoons & on the movie “The Plague Dogs” , painting cells, old style with Nepenthe Productions. They were the same people who made “Watership Down”. I loved it & I absolutely love cartoon & animation people! Most animation is done on computers now! BooHoo!

4) WORKSHOPS & PAINTING FACES ~ I have several workshops I’ve created that combine art & movement. My biggest passion…I love to dance & paint! Eventually, I will be offering my “SOUL TREK”  dance trance & “CANVAS DANCE” art & dance workshops in Seattle. Face Painting too! I can’t wait to paint some faces! YAY!

I am thankful for all the great non-art & art jobs I’ve had that have supported me to be creative.  I’m learning now, how to animate my characters & hope to have them up on YouTube asap!

Thanks For Visiting!!

Take Care!
