Being an artist is not about fame or fortune, where you show or how much you sell. Being an artist is a full-time life, not just a full-time job or a career. 
Art Lessons is about my relationship to my work--what inspires me and keeps me going. Part personal story and part reflection, the book contains seven essays which begin with hand-lettered quotes. Each contains hard-won truths that I have learned during my thirty-plus years of making art: the role of patience, the development of the critical eye, the struggle for perfection, and the idea that an artist's best teacher is the work itself. 
"The greatest gift we can give ourselves as artists is the gift of time: time to gather—to walk and read and think and see, time to play—to doodle and dabble and try new materials and mediums, time to work, and time to reflect—to let work sit and sink in so we can come back to it with fresh eyes."
