How did you get into debt?
Credit card debt for family issues, which are on going.
How does your economic reality effect your art?
I have a 15 year old computer still running Windows XP. Most of the work I plan and execute (esp polyester plate )is on the computer using Photoshop. However my computer crashes about 2 or 3 times a day, and is very slow. So it takes me lots of longer, anxious days to work on something, and often I give up in frustration. So output has suffered a great deal. Also very difficult to purchase materials so wind up not having enough to fully complete work.The cost of taking techniques and materials workshops and classes is generally way out of my reach.
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
Not sure, as I have never been out of debt.
