I have been serious about many things, and the process of art making had been the most continuous activity I have been serious about in my lifetime. I can tell that it is difficult for many to take my art serious but this makes no difference to me. I continue on my path, using my practices. I have many practices: a studio practice, a learning practice, a play practice, a yoga practice, a practice of nonviolence, a physical activity practice, and a meditation practice (to name the ones I can remember right now). Through these practices my path may change, and I the process of art making stays consistent.
