This is the third and last question that they would like us to cover in our talk at Art All State
What does being an artist mean to you?
This is a tough one. I don't think that you have a choice. If you are an artist then you are. There is nothing you can do about it. For me it keeps me sane and centered. If I don't make for awhile then I get unbearable. And no one wants to be around me. I need to make, it is in my blood. I have heard others artist say that it is the same as breathing air, and it is. I do not have a choice in it, I need to make and I need to sit at my bench. Just sitting there makes everything all right, no matter how bad a day it is. Everything just melts away and there is only making. I think that if someone is meant to be or do something then they will, because you have to. It may take someone a very long to realize it but you will find it.
