"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"I really love printmaking. To me, it’s endlessly fascinating. The thing that I like the most is doing hard grounds and working with needles, because the needle is always the same size. So I think I got into this thing of scratching, which is just like obsessive, repetitive motion. But it can mimic hair. And you just work really slowly; you build things up very slowly."
