"I still remember the first time I decided that selling my artwork was the only thing I wanted to do. I was 6 or 7 and my mom was driving me home from school when I saw a young man trying to sell his artwork on his driveway. I asked my mom what the man was doing and she explained that he was trying to get people to stop and purchase his art. I was excited to learn that you could actually sell something that you drew or made! Of course at the time I was busy with She-Ra coloring books (it was the 80's after all) and I told her I was going to go home and color everything from those books and sell them in our driveway! She politely informed me the best that she could that no one would want to buy a colored She-Ra picture. I still went home and colored my little heart out to get "ready" for the day I would be good enough to sell my work".
