How did you get into debt?
I live in NYC. The most expensive city! I can not think of a time when I was not in debt. With housing, education and trying to afford a studio its just an endless cycle.
How does your economic reality effect your art?
I make models of the sculptures and rarely get to build the actual work due to the costs involved. My process, practice, and artistic evolution is slowed down drastically.
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
If I wasnt in debt that means I would have money. With money I would really work much much larger than how I paint currently. Even though I put all my money into my work already, I have project ideas that I would LOVE to do but require money to make it happen.
