"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."
"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."
