I am an artist at heart and soul. As a child I spent hours in my bedroom drawing young women in fashions I created. i wanted to be a fashion designer but, my mom had no money to send me to school. I work as a medical records coder. It pays the bills but it nithing at all from me as far as using my artisitic imagination.
