I am so unbelievably grateful that I have Stuart Rogers & Stuart Rogers' Studios. While I was in class last night, it struck me that I am coming up on my 13th year studying with Stuart!
I do things in this class that scare the crap out of me & I feel like there is no limit to what I can learn and how I can grow as an artist and as a person. Stuart isn't set in his ways, over the years there has been an evolution & deepening of his technique & approach, he seems to be unafraid to evolve with us. He is my Sanford Mesiner, my Lee Strassberg, my Stella Adler!
In this class, I have the opportunity to grow past my comfort zone, so so so far past my comfort zone…I really never imagined that I could ever feel so free and alive on stage and go so deep…Stuart is a phenomenal teacher who has helped me grow through the years…grow into a confident artist who can work with anyone & will always keep digging for more. This Studio is alive; it is an empowering supportive community. I am surrounded by talented driven artists who consistently inspire me.
I have heard people say that they think it is foolish to stay in the same class for a long time, that you get comfortable & there is a ceiling on how much you can learn & grow…well, I see no ceiling, I feel no boundaries…I am continuously pushing myself closer & closer to the edge…tempting failure…and it feels fantastic!
I rarely speak out about things, because I think, “oh just because it’s special to me, why would anyone else care”, but I realize that I need to speak out. I need to shout it from the rooftops. You may choose another place to study & I respect that completely, but maybe if I share my passion, I can encourage others to test their limits and dig deep to express themselves!
This life is short & if I am fortunate enough to have a place where I can continue to explore myself artistically, as well as support the other artists around me…then I am truly blessed! I have met my closest dearest friends at SRS, it is my home and I thank everyone & everything that has led me to this place!
