On her drawing:


"I was waiting for a point
where the drawing would
become violent
but I was going to get there
through elegance"


"try to concentrate on drawing
while letting go

not be afraid of what's lurking in one's self
and yet not get trapped
by the idea of creating something uncanny
or complicated

forget all expectations
