Expressing Kinship and Self Through Art

Episode 203,  Dec 20, 2022, 10:00 AM

What does following your passion look like? How many aspiring actresses, dancers, writers, podcasters and artists have been told that their powers won’t make them any money? How many of them stop chasing their creative dreams altogether? Well, my next guest did the very thing that many people would be terrified of doing. Today, I'm interviewing Maya Fuji, a Japanese American artist who dropped out of graduate school to follow her passion for art. Leaving school to do what you love takes guts, which is why I'm so excited to talk to Maya. She's had a pretty amazing journey so far. Maya has held solo exhibitions in two San Francisco art galleries this year alone. The first one was in May at Voss Gallery, and the second opened just recently at Swim Gallery in November.
