How did you get into debt?
Student loans for my BA and MA (Master in Arts Administration)... Home mortgage, credit card and a small loan to buy an used car.

How does your economic reality effect your art?
In the subjects I choose, in the quality of my materials, in not being able to produce as much work as I would like (due to almost no time available because I have to earn money to pay debts) or no money to participate in art residencies or apply for art fairs / open calls, etc.

Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
If I weren't in debt I would be able to work less and have more time for my art production + quality of materials to produce.
