It is almost impossible to developed artistically when the opportunity to practice and produce is punctuated by normal life. Art is a transcendental activity open only to those lucky enough to have either financial freedom or a lot of perseverance. It is a journey requiring energy, confidence and commitment, not the easy sit down spare moment hobby that it may appear to be. Most ordinary people won’t get the time to really begin until they retire from work and all the other pressures of life and maybe not even then. I feel privileged that I have the opportunity to steal time and serenity it takes to do this.
