"I’m having trouble getting my work out there. I have a hard time finding the self-confidence. If it was up to me, I’d just make my work in isolation and not worry about the marketing or promotion, but I know I can’t do that. The problem is— my work is really quiet. It’s very subtle and subdued. It takes time to appreciate. And there’s so much image saturation in today’s world, it seems that only the most aggressive imagery is getting noticed. I’m finding that it takes a lot of boldness to take a firm stance in making quiet work."
