"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 hope that my paintings can be emotional moments for people. In the paintings where there’s tenderness I work for it. I’m not afraid of it. And I care very much about what I care about- and when I choose to. And there’s not that many tender moments that can bring up that response in me."
