Question 12: Are there any noteworthy events that influenced your career?

Transcription


I don’t think I’ve had one "Zeitgeist" moment or one singular event. I think for me it’s been the culmination of a lot of little occurrences that have just added up and given my practice momentum. I’ve had a few lucky breaks but I’m not an artist who had a big discovery or anything like that in kind of the Hollywood sense or a big breakthrough moment. It’s just been kind of a steady progression in which I’ve been able to have the opportunity to do the works, had the opportunities to show the pieces to an audience and had the opportunities to get a growing peer group of other artists, that is the community I work with. So it’s a lot of small things and it’s the sum total of all these little things. Which I think is a lot like everybody’s lives and careers, I don’t think that many people have had these great breakthrough moments.
