“The girl cut in two occurred to me when I was about to paint”

“I started without any real plan of what I wanted to create”

“Most of my paintings are created in the spur of the moment”

“It is important to be real and true to yourself, and in doing so be free”

“I was able to get the result I wanted, the woman tearing herself apart”

“The environment where I paint is really important….it was vital to get a strong sense of the skin tearing”

“Photography is also integral to making this idea work”

“[G]etting the angles of the shots right makes the art work come alive”
