Inexpensive 3D Limbs Could Bring New Hope to Sudan's 50,000 Amputees

23 Questions for Painter and Knick-Knack Collector Jiha Moon | Artinfo

I love this interview with Atlanta-based artist, Jiha Moon. Naturally, I am most interested in her typical day as an artist.

Describe a typical day in your life as an artist.

I am an artist and I am also a mother and a wife who is multi-tasking many things at the same time. I get up, check my email, social networks, news from here and Korea online, and go to my studio by 11 a.m. I work in my studio until I pick up my son at his school around 5 p.m., and then come home and cook dinner for my family and spend time with them. After my son goes to bed, I do some correspondence or other business-related work on the computer. If I am not too tired I often go back to my studio by 9 or 10 p.m. and work until I go to bed.”

When do you create your artwork?

As I continue down the path as a professional artist, one question that I can’t help but ask the most prolific artists is, “What does your life look like?”

How do these artists create their art while balancing their commitments to day jobs, teaching, family and friends? How do they create as much work as they do?  

So my question to you is, when do you create your work? Is it in short bursts in your spare time or large blocks during the day? Late at night or early in the morning? Scheduled or free-flowing?
