How to write an artist statement

Your artist statement is a very personal text. It helps people looking at your artwork - your audiences - to understand its context, to learn about your artwork's message, to know your inspirations and motivations. It can consist of the description of your creative process, the current directions you are taking in your work, or your aspirations for the future. Include a photo of yourself for a more personal touch.
