DAD: Would you as an experienced artist give some advices to apprentices or newcomers in your area of art?

MAA: Don’t get into this career unless you absolutely feel like you must. It is very difficult to make a living as an artist. But, if you really really just have to be an artist, jump in with both feet and be prepared to work very hard!


DAD: Thanks a million for this short interview! For your artistic career we wish you all the best!
