"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."
"I liked the fact that this was a very direct way to make a print. It was doing what printmaking does. It wasn’t manipulating anything. I’m just dropping acid on a plate and the acid bites into the plate, and 'bo-dink!' you print it, and that’s it. Of course, that’s not it, but the directness really thrilled me, and the fact that that’s what I’m interested in- these drips and drops- really worked for me."
