‘For as long as I can remember I have painted, sketched, and made things out of anything on hand. As a child, I drew on rocks, napkins, my jewelry boxes, and painted on the lamp and clock next to my bed (much to my mother's dismay, I am sure). Art has always been the way I lose myself, calm myself, it is meditative for me. It comes more from a drive than a desire. I don't know how not to do it. It's as much what keeps me alive as food and oxygen’
