This month Creative Mix talks with visual artist, Jennifer Chenoweth, about mixing up art, life, and livelihood in Austin, Texas. In addition to her active exhibition schedule and responsibilities as a single parent, Jen is the founding director of the online, non-profit gallery, Generous Art, a new paradigm for artists to create revenue while giving back to their their communities.
Here’s what she had to say about putting together the various pieces of a creative life:
Part of the process of making art, whatever your medium, is the discovery of yourself. You have to do the same work when it comes to building the rest of your life. You need to know what choices are going to make you happy and what choices will not. And only you can answer those questions. No one else can tell you what’s going to work for you.
