What are some of the biggest challenges you face as an artist?
I think it is the challenge most contemporary artists are facing more or less – trying to financially support ourselves and stand out in a very crowded contemporary art scene. I personally doubted that I could ever get to this point, but now I am starting to believe that dreams can actually come true.
What are your long-term goals as an artist? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I don't make plans, really. I take one day at a time and try to make the best of it. My goals are short term. When a painting is finished, I have accomplished my goal. So, I try to work as much as I can and wait to see where it can take me.
