[Might Could Essays]

I’ve written over 100 essays on living, working, and making as an artist. These essays are like a personal journal that allows me to reflect on the ongoing process of discovering and developing myself as an artist. Some common themes are overcoming creative obstacles, developing a personal style, and pondering what it means to live as an artist.
