I have always felt that the artist's role is to communicate his or her vision by using strong images, images that transcend the everyday materials from which they are fabricated. For me, success comes when I create an image my imagination can live inside
in the way other artist's images have lived within me. My greatest challenge has been to try to combine all these loves - dry hills, indigo seas, ruins, purple bougainvillea, white stucco walls, lateen-rigged coasters - into pictures of imaginary
places and creatures, and thereby invent a kind of paradise within. This is a Garden of Eden from which we cannot be expelled."
