I'm a visual merchandiser at a mid-tier fashion group. I am now 36 and would like to work in an area I really love.

I am considering changing career and working in the art industry or at a gallery, since I hold a BFA in  painting and Master's in design.

I have been in the design and visual merchandising field for more then 10 years and the workload getting much heavier then before. Since last year, I have often had to work for 16-28 hours at a time, and it's starting to affact my health and personal life - I am starting to have bad head aches and am oftn depressed.

Please help.
