ARTIST LAUREATE AWARD INFO

What did the Fellowship or Laureate mean to you at the time you received it?

It was a huge boost to my career and provided finances to complete more work.

What do you do now? Has your art evolved or changed?

I am a working artist, photographer and owner of two companies. At Napkin Dad Press, I run a blog called The Napkin Dad Daily, sell merchandise, and speak nationally on a variety of topics from creativity to change to parenting. I also own MAKE Photography and Design Studio where I produce photo-collage work for exhibition at the gallery and museum level, as well as commissioned personal portraits. Also under this umbrella I do Creativity Coaching for artists needing a jump start in their artistic endeavors. To see what I?m up to, go to: http://napkindad.com/blog/articlesinterviews/

What is one piece of advice you would give to an emerging artist?

Follow through with all contacts and opportunities with more diligence and more perseverance than you think is wise. If you want it YOU have to push for it, again and again and again.

Briefly, how would you describe the state of the arts locally, as well as national and beyond?

positive but fragmented and shortsighted.
