New blog post by Sarah Duffield on the inevitable question and owning the profession of artist.

I’m new to blogging, I have in fact only written two posts but I thought this one might resonate with some of the artists in the collective.

I’m at a social gathering – a BBQ at a friend’s house and I meet someone new, I think we could be friends, I’d like to impress; we exchange names, maybe some polite conversation about the state of the nation or the burnt sausages before quickly, irrevocably the inevitable question is asked …

“So Sarah, what do you do?”

I’m not entirely sure why I find this a difficult question to answer, maybe it’s because I feel that the answer I have isn’t a socially acceptable one for a grown up to give.
