No matter how hard it seems or what opposition you face, it is always worth it to believe in yourself as an artist and to keep creating and sharing your art with the world. It’s your dream and sometimes it’s the most important thing you’ve got.

It’s important to release the unique vantage point you have of the world through your art – don’t be afraid to put it all out there and take risks creatively, even if you never share that work publicly. It is a part of developing and refining your artistic voice.

Stay close to those who are your biggest supporters and accept their help when offered – which they may express in large ways and small. My supporters have been teachers, professors, bosses, friends, and most importantly my family.
