"Often when you're in the process of realizing an image, it's going somewhere else. If that tangent starts going off in a place that feels more exciting, that's what I go with."
"I made ‘Born,’ a Genevieve being born of a deer. And I also have no idea where that came from. You can say that it relates to different mythological stories or something. Sometimes I’m making things and people will say, ‘Oh, that’s Diana; oh, that’s Daphne.’ But I don’t know. It just pops into my head."
