"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"There's a continual theme in my life and in my work. It's about taking something that seems like it's one way and flipping it over so it becomes the other. So I like to take things that are maybe limitations in my life and try to somehow recontextualize them, glamorize them, make them more interesting, and vice versa. So I took my simple living situation and used this certain aesthetic code of modern design, and made it, in my mind, very glamorous."
