How did you get into debt?
College Education / ignorance
How does your economic reality effect your art?
I live off a state pension. I have no disposable income. It is mandatory that I sell my work to continue working as a visual artist. When my sales slump, I cannot fund all the components necessary (as stated above) to run a modest art career. Without sales I would be forced to withdraw from educational opportunities and gallery representation. I would work in isolation and my work would be unseen.
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
Yes, but everything is interrelated.
