"You know, art can be something which can really disempower people, or it can be a vehicle which can empower people."
"Untitled #32 (A Decorated Chronology of Insistence and Resignation)" (1994)
"For me, craft has always been an ideological component in the work because it’s about a type of focus and social comportment that usually isn’t expected of a male. There’s a dutifulness that historically has been referenced or attributed to females, so I’ve always seen my devotion to craft as a type of protest."
