Once upon a time, I was a cake decorator. And I decorated many a cakes. Unfortunately, I was dogged by a boss who did not understand artists, and I ended up on burn-out. I have a degree in art history with a minor in studio art (photography), but I'm still loathe to this day to hold a brush or pencil, and even my photography has been on the downturn.
So I turned my attention to other things. Since I quit icing art, I've turned to the boozy sort of art. I have been bartending and recently earned my cicerone. Unfortunately, that does little to stymie the need in my heart to pick up a pencil again...
