My husband earns a good wage and supports my artistic practice. Art sales and honorariums also support my practice.
I try to choose inexpensive or cost-free materials to help us stay on budget and to meet our monthly debt obligations. When executing a big idea for an art project, which may require a larger than usual expense, we make corresponding adjustments to our lifestyle until we cover it.
We are in debt as a result of our taking on a mortgage to finance the cost of our home, as well as a loan to finance the cost of our car. We are likely going to have to take on more debt to finance the cost of our children's college education soon.
