Balancing two jobs is no easy task, but somebody’s gotta do it. It’s a bit easier when the two jobs are in alignment with your passion. And if there’s any truth to the saying, “Find a job you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life,” then Miami-based artist Diana Contreras would have to be the textbook definition of living your best life.
Contreras is a grade school art teacher and muralist whose work has been posted in New York, Miami, Iowa, and Canada. “I often feel that I am living two separate lives,” Contreras told the street art publication Street Art NYC in her 2015 interview. “I somehow manage because I love what I do so much. Both my lives give me tremendous gratification.”
