In an interview with Andrea Crow-Brandon, she spoke much of her artwork and her time as an artist. Her statements are as follows: "I am constantly studying shapes, colors, and techniques so that I may improve on what has already taken a lifetime to learn. I work very passionately for rather long hours with my unusual method of painting. From my eyes, through my soul, and to my fingertips, the paint and I become one. I work with the paint until something is revealed to me. I rarely know what the painting will be until it is done." ...more
