My clear direction as an artist is focused inward:
1. Love of play, discovery, exploration and adventure.
2. Continuous learning and getting better.
3.Trying new things.
I do have collections although in my mind they are more like obsessions.
Not the right approach for galleries? Maybe. But for people? I think this is how our minds work.. craving novelty and inspiration and beauty and meaning .. and all of these have different meanings to everyone.
So.. is this my lame excuse for not selling truck loads of my art? Well, I thought about that a lot. And the answer is no. Because the moment I try to push my work for sale, I feel forced to confine my ideas into predefined boxes and pigeon holes that immediately make me want to stop creating and crawl under my blanket.
I won’t be famous? I know lots of people who survived that! I won’t have thousands of followers? Yep. People have survived that, too. Snd they’re happy. I won’t make money off my art? When I made my first mark as a kid, it was not about money. It’s just in my DNA to make these marks. I can make money doing other things.
