Through the other Goldrausch artists and the project managers I gained a new vocabulary for my works and an awareness of new interpretations. I’ve become braver, use a broader range of artistic materials, and my technical know-how has been greatly enhanced. Art is still my primary means of support. It was very good to learn how multifaceted and diverse the career paths of visual artists can be. Because art doesn’t have to be unprofitable. I wouldn’t want to do without the network that developed through Goldrausch.
