Vincent Van Gogh once said, “The way to know life is to love many things.” In a way, this quote sums up the reason I chose Interior Design as a career. I love to paint, sculpt and weave. I love to sew, spending hours hand sewing appliqué quilts. If there is a form of art, I want to try it even once- I’ve even tried glass blowing. Antiques hold a special place in my live, too, for when my grandmother died she left me all her books, art and furnishings. Flea market and antique mall owners in my area know me by name, since I frequently seek to add to my collection. And I love people. Add all this up, and not only do I have a career that I love, but have passion for.
Anatole France said, “To accomplish great things we must not only act, but also dream. Not only plan, but also believe.” And I do believe- that this is the career for me and that I will succeed as an interior designer.
