How did you get into debt?
I came into debt as a result of attaining my MFA.
Describe your art practice
I'm a conceptual artist who works in series using a variety of mediums. I work in photography, drawing, performance, and sculpture.
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
Yes. As my debt is approximately a third of my monthly disposable income, and in total more than a year's salary, I don't have the means to purchase the materials I often would like. I often have to settle for a lower quality of materials, or change the medium entirely based on affordability. I also have to work from my small home, which limits the size of the work I am able to make.
