Art is an Expression of Emotions

How would you encourage new artists?

Because my oldest daughter is a teacher now, I spend a lot of time with youth that want to pursue art. Some have interned with me and that’s been great. My best advice for them is to have a Plan B. It’s difficult to get started and to make a living as an artist. Even the best artists struggle until they find their niche. I think it was Robert Henri that said “A successful artist must be developed.” You can’t force it. It’s like cooking- it’s not finished until it’s done. Like anything in life, you must stick with it. Add seasoning. Get to know yourself and experiment a lot. Follow artists you like and reach out to them. You’ll probably find that they are generous; they want to give back with advice and encouragement.
