Eternally grateful and future plans!

First, I want to say a million thank yous to all those who wrote in support of me. It truly renewed my hope in humanity, made me feel cared for, and most importantly reminded me that life is precious.

If you have not received a personal note from me it is only because the support was overwhelmingly large and to write a note to everyone would take me more time than I have at the moment. But please know I treasure each and every word!

Second, the reason I don't have a lot of spare time is that I have decided to go to art school finally! It is 22 years after I originally planned to go but better late then never right?

This whole experience good and bad led me to choosing a career path that I feel super passionate about......Art Therapy. It is fairly new field but requires A LOT of schooling, like 6 years+. So I am buckling down, getting things prepared, and giving it a go. I hope to be enrolled either by Jan or April at the latest.

Again, thank you fellow artists and friends!


  1. Tristan does art therapy. It certainly does seem to help him cope with overwhelming emotions.

    I'm thrilled that you are going back to school. Can't wait to see what happens next.

  2. Marnie, that is such awesome news. I can't tell you how happy I am to read this post -it is SO great!!!!!

  3. What fantastic art and how great that you are going to art school! I wish I had done that at your age. And becoming an art therapist, what a great choice. I always feel better when I work on something that is playing with my emotions.

  4. That´s good news - I think that art therapy is a wonderful way of healing, and here in my hometown we have amazing exhibitions with unbelievably good art from mentally disabled people. It must be very satisfying to help people to find their own way of expression. Good luck!
