How to feel fulfilled as an artist.

  1. Never compare yourself to other artists.
  2. Know that your family is biased. Whether for or against, their views skewed and do not represent an accurate reflection of your work in the world.
  3. Base your success on how your art has enriched your life and how feel when create it.
  4. Constantly push yourself to expand and learn.
  5. Know that art can never be measured in dollars – and will only ever appreciate in value
  6. Trust that when you are making the world more beautiful, there is always enough. Honest work is not a compromise if it supports the creation of art.
  7. Remember, it is the job of the artist to create new culture, not simply to regurgitate what exists.
  8. Never expect your family to understand your art, but do your best to educate them about it, patiently.
  9. Whenever a client / gallery owner / patron offers their advice, smile and nod. Then create your art authentically.
  10. Remember what Dali said:”have no fear of perfection. You’ll never reach it.”
