"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."
"If you’re interested in making more than one painting a year, or if you’re interested in making more than one sculpture, and you want to work in different mediums and make public works, you need to have
support that can help you do these things while you are also thinking about other areas to investigate. I like to work with people because I don’t want to be in a room by myself. I love the sense of family that I have with my studio; it’s a community."
