I have a favorite artist, actually the artist whose work I saw, that inspired me to want to create beautiful things. Honestly, had I not wandered into the gallery that day… October something in 2015, to be semi exact 😂, I would be racking up more debt working on a graduate degree that I wasn’t that excited about. It was just the “obvious next step” in my career path. Well long story short, I was able to meet him yesterday during a signing. I will never forget that awkward encounter 😂 and I wouldn’t change a thing.. except I think instead of shaking his hand… I would of hugged him. Maybe next time!!!
