When People Respond to my Art
Ali told me she really loves when people call and say “we’ve been wanting one of your pieces for years, or we’ve been watching your career for 5 years.” As with many artists, she wants to “connect” with people who experience her art. I think she feels people have a better understanding of her as an artist and as a person when they experience her art. The first piece she sold was one that got her published in a major art publication that featured a home. Her art was a centerpiece of the feature and it helped launch her career on a professional level. Ali believes if you engage someone early in life, then they become your advocate, both as an artist and a person.
