"I would say I have a couple. One of them is to be able to live on only my art and painting alone, I have a whole other job, a writing job. The second would be to just help ensure that my kids become the best that they can."
"And for the art, the art you wanted to live off of, when did that passion start and what do you like about it most?"
"I've always been involved in art since I was a kid, but I didn't really go that direction as an adult into work, and so over the past five years I've started painting again, and it just feels really great."
