Question 18: What is your purpose in art-making?


First and foremost, I want to be happy with what I’ve done. I do it primarily for myself, and so much the better if other people like it too. You do it because it contributes to your well-being, it helps you live better, not necessarily money-wise, but it makes you feel good. This is what you do, you’ve taken up an idea, you’ve done well in carrying it out, and there’s that Aah! You’re pleased with yourself and you’re going to do more of it. I do this because I need to do it to feel right.
