"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."
"In 'Seascapes,' my subject matter is water and air. Stillness...I’m not intentionally promoting it, but most people see it, and it’s very quiet and serene. That’s something that just naturally, automatically comes out through my work."
