I've been incredibly fortunate in my choice of education(s) and career(s). First art college (what is now the Oslo National Academy of the Arts) and then, some years later, I began my studies at the department of Psychology, University of Oslo, graduating in 1996. I was amazed at how much the two fields could supplement each other, and have lectured at the National Academy about it every year since 2007
The CV looks like this:
Educated in painting at what is now called the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, 1974-1978
Qualified as a psychologist at the University of Oslo, dept. of Psychology, 1996, with the thesis "Art in the Eyes of Artist and Others"
PhD from the University of Oslo, dept. of Psychology, 2006, with the dissertation "Perceptual Processing in Artists and Laymen"
