All my siblings became artists. One's a novelist, my brother is a painter, my sister was a costume designer.
My forms are not abstractions of things in the real world. They're also not symbols. I would say that my job is to invent these forms and to put them together in a way that keeps your interest, to give the forms a quirky identity so you can engage with them, so you realize there's an inner intelligence or logic.
Most days, I practice piano in the mornings and I spend the rest of the day painting.
My 20s were spent in a room, alone, mixing paints and figuring it all out.
So many paintings have hidden meanings or need wall texts, but my work is not in that category.
