Feeling stuck in your creative progress?
Maybe you just need the freedom of a personal project that has no to low potential to amount to anything.
When I was at a crossroads in my life I took on the role of artist apprentice. I’d left a high-paying corporate design job on Wall Street. After almost a year searching America for a new life I was getting low on funds.
What did I do? Signed on for a no-pay position with an artist who’d barely made a dent in the artworld.
And yet . . . it led to everything else.
Significantly it led to launching Studio E Gallery 20 years ago. A new career and a new business were spawned. All because I went in the direction of something that felt right. Even if it seemed to make little sense at the time.
