How did you get into debt?
I financed my BFA and MFA with student loans. I have incurred credit card debt from earning less than the amount I need to live and operate my business.
Describe your art practice
I make immersive environments and objects from wax, soap, found objects, reclaimed materials, etc.
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
I have an ambitious installation series in the planning stages which is stalled until I have the income or support to produce the work. If I was not already so deeply in debt, I would be more likely to take a risk on self-financing the project.
