After 9 years of studying art from several angles (graphic design, painting, art history degree) and painting on the side I'm now practicing art full time. It has its pros and cons - I do what I love and love what I do, but it's not exactly synonymous with financial security (As Grayson Perry once said, you don't become an artist to get rich). Materials don't come cheap. Then there's exhibition fees, promotion expenses and other expenses you just hope will pay off some day. It's apparently more difficult to get recognition as a young unknown artist when you have an MA in Art history instead of an MFA. So I try to find new ways of spreading the word about what I do and hope that you will support me on my journey - a journey I will keep you up to date on through this site.
