“For me, making and selling art is definitely a business practice. The greatest challenge I face in making my artwork a sustainable business venture is expanding the number of dealers who are working to sell my artwork.

I would also like to complete a public art project … I want to depict how our increasingly chaotic, artificial environment is becoming inhospitable to life.”
