Excitement!!

I finally decided to contact two of my favorite artists, painter Misato Suzuki and sculptor and performance artist, Sha Sha Higby. I acquired their email addresses on their websites. After explaining who I am (a painting student, scared by the approach of graduation) and geeking out for a sentence or two about how awesome their work is, I sought out some advice on being a professional artist out in the big, scary, non-academic world. I was so thrilled when they actually emailed me back. Both were very nice and gave the same piece of advice: just keep making art and don't stop, even if you have to set aside a little bit of time each day to do it. It was definitely intimidating to do, but I'm glad I took the initiative to get in touch with these two awesome ladies. Find out more about them here:
