Season One “Work of Art” runner-up Peregrine Honig talks about her career before and after the television show, the inspiration that comes from her global travels, and the intersection of her life as a fine artist and a small business owner. She also engages in an in-depth discussion with the Klein Artist Works group about how a writing practice can help sustain a focused visual practice.
“Sometimes writing can keep me from making something goofy just because I can. It makes me take myself seriously. It’s important to have that way to be at peace with trying to sound intelligent.”
