"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."
"When I was working on the watercolors, there was a phenomenon that I wanted to bring into the painting. As I started to work with that element and bring it into one painting for its different references it was just not working. I kept pushing the color into the painting where there had been an intense amount of drawing and an intense action between all the different marks."
