I have been looking for Career Opportunities lately.
I am of a particular stage in life that I have a wealth of eclectic experience.
It wasn’t until I had a wonder-full conversation with my Bruddah Cuz Lawrence (Thank YOU) did the ‘lightbulb’ go off so to speak. I’ve been trying to mold myself into what I think they want and leaving out what makes me distinctive.
I have been self sabotaging + not looking to myself for Inspiration.
Mark my words, from now on I will be sharing all my unique endeavors because each and every one of them have shaped me into who I am today!
I went through a Decade’s worth of saved bits, and I have A L O T of saved bits. I purged as I went through it all + then it dawned on me, ‘How am I going to take all this s t u f f with me if and when I move?’
Find the opportunity first, I said to myself.
… I am glad I saved this lovely Recommendation Letter from my then Supervisor at the Del Paso Heights Library. I ran their Homework Center.
Still the best job I ever had.
1. I taught Art within the Sacramento Public Library System.
Absolutely loved it:
2. I taught Art at the Crocker Art Museum.
It was more challenging than my Library Gig: but I am a Self Taught Artist + went entirely on my Passion for Art + my Muse. The experience made me a better Artist.
3. I was invited to participate in two Inspired Art Fairs.
It made me fall in love with London + it’s Art Community + I made life long Mates + I sold a lot of my Art.
I will have a Creative Career in London one day.
4. I am a Book Cover Photographer for the German Agency Plain Picture.
5. I made CD Covers + Posters. It was a lot of fun collaborating with other creative folks:
6. I made a cover for an Internationally known Music Magazine.
I was in a few Mixed Media Magazines + a German book on Websites as well.
As I found more + more bits to scan, I became more and more Inspired.
Most of my past experiences, I did not have any formal training in that position. I had and still have, that Grassroots + DYI attitude that has served me well.
And at the end of all this, I SO look forward to that next big Adventure.
If anyone reading this has an opportunity that might appeal to me or might be a good fit:
