"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."
"There are specific rules in drawing the tarot figures. I am not into the mysticism of the tarot or the mysticism of numbers, but I took on an aesthetic system with rules that were very interesting to explore because I don't normally make those kinds of rules for my work."
