"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"When they say, 'When you get older, life gets easier,'—it does not. My biggest hope is that I get more courage, I get more trust in myself, I get more faith—that I'm able to do things that maybe I wasn't able to do before."
—Ursula von Rydingsvard
