Vision

"I realized were I to paint the flowers so small, no one would look at them because I was unknown. So, I thought I'll make them big like  the huge buildings going up. People will be

startled; they'll have to look at them - and  they did. "

Conviction

"I found  I could say things with color  and shapes  that I couldn' t say in any other way - things that I had no words for."

Passion

"The bones are my symbols of the desert. They seem to cut sharply to the center of something that is keenly alive on the desert even tho' it is vast and empty and untouchable - and knows no kindness with all its beauty."
