Travel from Pharmaceutical Sales Career Helped Discover Art

Clint Cora Leung, the owner of Free Spirit Gallery, discovered Northwest Native Indian art and Canadian Eskimo art while traveling across Canada on business during his pharmaceutical sales career. Clint worked as a pharmaceutical sales representative, a product manager and a sales manager in the industry. His exposure to Northwest Native Indian art came as a result of his business trips to Vancouver. After business meetings, he went to the Gastown district of Vancouver and it was here in the various galleries where he fell in love with Northwest Native Indian art.

It was a similar experience with Canadian Eskimo art as well as he found himself visiting galleries in Toronto, Ottawa and Quebec City during business travel to those cities. He says, "You can say that my time during my pharmaceutical sales career helped me make a transition to the art world."

After 14 years in the pharmaceutical industry, Clint left to start Free Spirit Gallery, which specializes in Northwest Native Indian art and Canadian Eskimo art. However, he has not left pharmaceuticals completely as he just finished writing a book called "How To Get A Dream Job In Pharmaceutical Sales - Direct Inside Advice and Guidance from a Sales Manager". Clint says that this book will help others get their start in the pharmaceutical sales field.
