“Once the numbers get large enough the data can say anything.”
An Interview with Marcy Miranda Janes
"I have seen people discount the medium as “lacy,” or doily-like, not noticing that the lace is comprised of AK-47s and drones. Kind of like swearing in a lovely tone of voice."

An Interview with Kristen Radtke

An interview with Stephen Knezovich
"My primary source materials are vintage books and magazines—deemed no longer useful or relevant— and rescued from thrift stores and attics and antique shops. Maybe what I’m really trying to do is give these publications a second life."
An interview with Camille Serisier
"I guess it’s quite a traditional approach, in that there’s a lot of planning and preparation. However, I view each stage as important, not just the final painted work."

An interview with Michelle Leveille
"I simply like the label, 'creative process.' It's a juxtaposition of terms. When you're creative, you're using the spontaneous, energetic, boundless part of your spirit."
