When I was four years old a friend asked me how I learned to be so good at "coloring". My response, which I have heard my parents tell and retell many times, was that you have to get up every day and color, color, color. Since then I have been doing just that and a little more. My undergraduate degree is in art and I have a graduate degree in art education. I taught art in the public schools for several years before becoming a full-time mom in 2005. I now have two little ones and my creative outlet has been making art with my kids (and a few others).
