"In the paintings where it's there—the tenderness—I work for it. I'm not afraid of it. If I could put my bleeding heart in there, I would."
"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."
