How did you get into debt?
I obtained my BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art and took out the maximum amount of loans that I was allowed to take out each year.
How does your economic reality effect your art?
It feeds my art, conceptually. I cannot escape what growing up within capitalism has taught me, nor can I escape my need for artistic success in order to pay my loans back in full. I'm working in many medium in order to achieve at least one success which will allow me to relieve myself financially.
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
