” I had self doubt all my life. I don’t think that I combated it. Meaning that I didn’t approach it head on but I just kept doing things and then eventually I recognized what I did as being valuable. The mirroring from the audience was positive, so little by little it got rid of a lot of the self doubt…I came to realize that maybe I’m not as much a schmuck as I thought I was. I still always feel inadequate as to what my goals are and what I think would be ideal in my art.”
