"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"A lot of times I’d have to contact fabricators...and when I called (especially when I was twenty and I would call with my voice and my accent) no one would help me with anything. So I started using the title ‘A To Z Administrative Services,’ almost as a joke. And I made letterhead and business cards and I’d call people up and I’d ask them for information. And they would automatically assume that I was a secretary calling for a legitimate company. Through the years it’s really opened a lot of doors and it’s really helped me to function."
