How did you get into debt?

How does your economic reality effect your art?
The lack of support for art makes an artistic practice very difficult. it affects the amount of time, energy and clarity I have for my work. And real estate prices affect the studio I am able to afford for my work. It also affects the amount of research I am able to conduct for my work. All this is erosive.
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
The scale and inclusiveness of my work would no longer be a limiting factor if I was not concerned with debt. I would no longer have to work a full 40+ hour work week to fund my work, which in turn would be more time dedicated to be independent artistic practice.
