There is nothing more thrilling than seeing your work installed in a gallery. Well... I suppose seeing your work installed in a museum would be more thrilling but I've yet to experience that joy. When you make art (and in fair quantities), you are often faced with the logistical challenge of where to store your art as you inevitably run out of space in your home. This is a challenge and this is my challenge. I'm lucky to have a good size office at work and the luxury of being able to live with my artwork both at home and at work. At the present time, an entire wall in my office is blank because these two large paintings are on display. When I look at that blank wall in my office, in my mind I think of these pictures and am reminded that my work is being viewed by new people. Gosh I love this feeling.
I work in the IT industry by day managing a team of software developers and administrators. I very much enjoy what I do. Technology changes as quickly as it gets boring so this career is suited perfectly for me.
