After being told for years that pursuing art wasn’t a viable source of income or success, I was finally able to abandon the discouraging notion that what I truly loved doing was insignificant. Perhaps I’m a bit late to the game of exhibiting my work…or maybe I needed to wait until now. Either way, it’s my time to take a risk and really start focusing on that which fills me with joy.
Most of the work I do for pleasure is politically influenced. Invoking uncomfortable feelings is something I find to be scarce in art, and I find beauty in recognizing this feeling and its deeper implications.
