I am a freelancer to the core. Always have been. So, when my professors recommended that I go directly from the shelter of school to the shelter of a gallery back in 2003, I was deeply offended. While I recognize that no one can get on in society without playing along with society, I just don’t want to believe that hierarchies are the only way, and that’s why I created Critics Critiqued.

It may be that an art dealer could position my work better than I can. And it may be that one day I’ll enjoy working wiht a commercial gallerist. But, for the moment, I’m happy making my own way: making my living on my terms. Learn about how I market my work in this e-book, or hire me as your art guide.
