The Office Art Guy
My greatest joy in life has always been creating art. I ignored this true calling when I went to college and studied Accounting and Spanish, to get a “good” job and a stable career. Sensing that I didn’t want to sit in an office all day in front of a computer, I joined the Peace Corps after graduating and worked in rural Costa Rica for 2 1/2 years. While working in Community Economic Development (in a small cloud-forest village that was already flush with non-monetary wealth!), I also spent a lot of time co-creating murals around the community. Then, I came back and started sitting in offices all day! After several years of this, I was becoming more and more miserable, as I wasn’t living the life that I wanted to. One day when driving home from my accounting job, funny work-related painting ideas started to come to me. In a flurry of artistic inspiration, I made several paintings and put them up for sale online. When someone first bought one, I felt elated! A few years later, I quit my job and started my own accounting business so that I could have a flexible schedule, while continuing to grow my art business. As a Dad of 3 kids, this arrangement worked beautifully, and I now work both as an Artist and an Accountant.
Sharing my artistic creations, whether art for your office or a design on a memorable gift item, is what I love to do. Many of my artworks draw from my accounting background, but since my life experiences and interests expand far beyond just accounting work, I also create designs for other professions, as well as more general designs.
