Wendee Neilson's Profile

About

I have so many passions and I just want to sit and play all day and not care about the outside world...well, to an extent I would. I have always been creative, but there was a long period of time that I let that part of me die for various reasons.

My background is in jewelry which I have been making jewelry for almost 20 years. It could even be 20 years, I just lose track of time. In the last couple of years, I have gotten into Mixed Media and finding this really a great place to be.

While I love my art and sharing with others, It has come to light that I need to make money, so I have gone back to college to finish my degree. In my 20's, I kept going back to college for accounting and in my late 30's discovered that I hate accounting and my last work for wages job, I ended up getting really ill and took much time off to heal and find my passion in…

My background is in jewelry which I have been making jewelry for almost 20 years. It could even be 20 years, I just lose track of time. In the last couple of years, I have gotten into Mixed Media and finding this really a great place to be.

While I love my art and sharing with others, It has come to light that I need to make money, so I have gone back to college to finish my degree. In my 20's, I kept going back to college for accounting and in my late 30's discovered that I hate accounting and my last work for wages job, I ended up getting really ill and took much time off to heal and find my passion in art again.

I have heal as much as I can and when I tried getting back into the job market, I found that I was no longer employable. So, I gone back to college to finish my degree. Well, I'm not going to study accounting, and more recently as of 5-6 years ago, was studying Psychology and left because of the on-going health issues. Today, I have changed my major to Counseling for Substance Abuse as I felt this would better suit my purpose in life. After that, I will go get my Master's degree in MFT (Marriage, Family Therapy) or in Life Coaching which is again, Psychology.

I am an independent artist and any sales made, help me financially to pay for college and to keep working on the art. I am also a member of the Deco Art Helping Artist Program.
