The life of an artist grows just like any thing else in life. There are ebbs and flows that determine where an artist is at that given creative moment in their life. For me, my work continues to gravitate toward my spirituality. Stemming from the social commentary my work usually displays, I continue in that vain but submerged within the context of the commentary is the light of "hope." Even in the darkest piece. I realize as I look back on my life graph, I never lost "hope" which for me explains the struggle of my work as it maturates. One advice I will give to young artists is do not measure yourself on the popularity or the exposure you do or don't have. Rather measure yourself on the growth you are making as an artist and if that growth is synchronized with your individual growth.
