In the process of working on my Master's Degree, I learned a lot about myself. I learned I need people and I learned how to work. When I left my familiar environment of home, school, friends, and moved to Santa Cruz and set up my garage-studio, I found I had trouble confronting my work. Being alone with the machinery scared me. If something went wrong that I did not understand, I was unable to work or even to remain in the studio. I missed people to talk with, to ask questions and advice of. But because I had to, I had my exhibit ahead of me, and because I wanted to, I had to conquer my problems and learn how to work by myself in the studio. I had to learn how to find resources outside the safe environment of school.
