"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."
"Oddly enough, I think influential on me is the landscape itself in southeastern Ohio...It's incredibly hilly right where I grew up and the landscape undulates beautifully. And you really do have a sense always of that ground plain rising up and rolling. It's the rolling hills- they're quite luscious and quite beautiful."
- Maya Lin
