How did you get into debt?
Living off of credit cards. Owning one preowned car for two adults to share. Emergency house repairs. Mortgage on an overinflated house bought in the bubble. Life expenses & bills. Paying taxes on public & social programs I don't participate in nor directly benefit from, but am required by law to contribute towards.
Describe your art practice
I'm a Sculptor and Art Jeweler actively showing work that's heavy in statement- steeped in political discourse, satirical narrative, and current events- actively around the globe. Each ring is hand cast in solid sterling silver or bronze, accompanied by an engraved glass cloche so savvy collectors can enjoy the work as a stand alone sculpture when not worn on the hand. The average price point is $900-$1200 per piece. I hope you find my work aligns with the vision and pace you plan for next the Whitney Biennial year.
