“Don’t play what’s there, play what’s not there.”

What’s your relationship with mirrors?
The mirror can be a better friend than people sometimes.
As far as artists go, can you judge a book by it’s cover?
I think we have to do our best to remember that everyone has the ability to surprise us.
If you had a superpower what would it be?
I would love to be able to teleport. To be able to be in the plains of the Midwest or the highlands of Scotland in a few seconds would be incredible.
What do you think Siri looks like?
I imagine Siri to be a cross between Zooey Deschanel and Steven Hawking. Is that too fucked up?
You’re studying art? But how are you going to make a living?”
Why do we keep asking artists this question?
If I counted how many times I have been asked this question and gotten the “look” that comes along with it I could….I don’t know…But main point, is that artists are bombarded with this question. And BELIEVE ME we are already thinking and worrying about it. Why reinforce that self-doubt? Artists know that their profession includes daily risk taking.
I recently attended an art lecture given by the artist Sharon Louden and she said point blank that “It takes a community to be an artist.” Hell yeah. And not just a community of artists, it takes all types; left-brainers and right-brainers alike.
And so with that being said I speak to everyone, lets become a community of challengers, motivators, appreciators, lovers, and thinkers.
