Someone I was close to once told me “You can’t have your cake and eat it too”. At the time, I was asking for help hanging on to a crumbling career in the arts.

The message I got was: “You can’t have the life you want…that’s just an unrealistic dream.”

What ended up happening was that I did stop trying to make a living from art. And I stopped sharing my work. I got a full-time job in an office, where I stayed for 13 years.

Now I’m starting to share my work again.

This blog is written in the spirit of having your cake and eating it too – having as much cake as you want, in fact.
