Caro Arevalo shares what it is like being a full time artist.

Disipline, routine and balance are three words that come to mind when she describes her day. Creative, listener, and learner are other words that come to mind. She is working from home but is constantly listening to what others are saying. She has a unique take on it and puts it into her art.

Are people really trying to tell me that the means justify the ends?

Yes I’m really gunna ask you to watch two youtube clips. And yes, it will be worth it. I’m glad you asked me why it’s worth it. This young man is terrific.
