"A lot of the work is about my life. We all have the stories- but I just can’t do that. There has to be a scrim- a structural scrim, a physical scrim, a tool scrim. If it’s just me being expressive, no one needs that- including me. It’s too much Judy- too please give it a break. So I like that distance. It keeps my brain working. Otherwise, it would all be emotion."
