If you compromise your values, you compromise your ability to love yourself.
My values are to honor and respect myself – my soul - and to honor and respect others though my work. “To do unto others as I would have done unto myself.”
If you compromise your values, you compromise your ability to achieve your dreams.
My dream is to create art and to share it with others – many others. I am the only one totally invested in my dream. It is my desire to achieve this dream. My art gives me a voice – my voice.
If I am influenced by outside forces, I am allowing others to make my art for me. How can I call that art my own?
Being an artist means not compromising yourself – what you value. I love myself too much to compromise. I hold my values dear as I go about achieving my dream.
