Passionate for engineering and art
I have been trying to figure out what career I would most enjoy, and I sort of stumbled across environmental engineering. This field has all the potential for me to thoroughly enjoy my work except one, being an artist. I love math and science, asking questions, knowing why a formula works, I am passionate about helping others and conserving the resources we have. I love the outdoors, and I saw that there are some positions that allow quite a bit of outdoor work. But I am an artist. I paint abstract art and portraits. It isn't a business, just a love, and I don't want to be in a place where I can't be using this. I know design happens, so there is creativity, but are there companies that are very artistic?

    Stephanie,
    Have you thought about industrial design?
    That field is a great mix of art and engineering.
    
    Check out the company IDEO for some cool industrial design projects.
    
    There are definitely companies out there focusing on environmental industrial design.
