"My approach tends to be from experiments. I need the challenge. If I know how to do something well, there's no need to do it all the time because it becomes a little monotonous. So I like to find a challenge."
"I think that the decorative aspect of the work comes systemically, organically, naturally, to me because it was really allowed to bloom and blossom and wasn’t curtailed or curbed when I was a child. You don’t understand the implications of those situations when you’re a child. Only in retrospect do you acknowledge perhaps how pivotal or how powerful they were as signifiers."
