There Are No Shortcuts

It's all about the long game.

Slow and steady.

Success as an artist isn't a destination, it's a beautiful tapestry that unfolds over the course of many years.

An artist is an ever-evolving creative force and everything happens at the right time.

We live in a culture of instant gratification and impatience.

We want everything, right now.

Unfortunately, shortcuts don't exist.

We all have to pay our dues: blood, sweat and tears.

You can't reach any level of success without taking the necessary steps and no one can take those steps for you.

The reason why so few artists achieve the level of success they seek is because they aren't willing to put in the work and they're ready to quit the moment they encounter their first obstacle.

The artist of the future is the visionary who works consistently, passionately and intelligently toward making her dreams come true.

Let everyone else seek shortcuts.

It's all about the vision and putting one foot in front of the other, day in, day out.
