The Year was 2000

In 2000, I was still at the Herron School of Art. I had found that Visual Communications was not working out for me. I had thought about at one time becoming an art teacher. I liked drawing and painting so much that I thought why not teach it. From there I decided to go into art education.

I had been taking my sister Mary and my cousin Paula to their doll club meetings ever sense 1997. In October of 2000 they had a Halloween Party. They asked us all to dress up. I dressed up as the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz. My sister Mary dressed up like a Princess. My cousin Paula thought I had such a good idea that she wanted to go as a Scarecrow too!
