Over the course of my career, I’ve suffered the over-the-top criticism of a number of women and it is tiring. I try to remember where it comes from as well as how criticism actually works.

The series that I talk about in the video is Critics Critiqued. I was painting portraits of Portland gallery owners in an attempt to get them to notice my art, but also as a way of establishing that I wasn’t going to let them intimidate me.
