Quotes

"I'm forever grateful and amazed that my work looks like my work. I know that sounds like an oxymoron but that's what I really feel. I never tried to have a 'style' it just happened through the joy of working. I don't like to look at other 'things' or 'inspiration' when I'm working for myself, I want the art to just appear, unannounced and not contrived. It must be real and truthful. Sometimes I can't stand what I'm doing but I'm not allowed to throw it out. I have to see the work I deem 'ugly' or even too 'pretty' because it is the way I communicate with myself. And then I don't want to judge it either.”"
"It is rather in the feminist mode to let one's changes of mind, and the processes of change, stand as evidence—and perhaps to remind people that minds that don't change are like clams that don't open."
Judge Martin L C Feldman upheld the state's ban on marriage equality, writing, "The court is persuaded that a meaning of what is marriage that has endured in history for thousands of years, and prevails in a majority of states today, is not universally irrational on the constitutional grid."
"I am not a postfeminism feminist. I am the Third Wave" Yale
