About

"She often emphasises the aloneness and dedication of being an artist. She talks a lot about how hard her work at painting has been – that she has read little – compares herself to other artists, like ballet dancers, whose whole lives are dedicated to towards one goal – trying to improve endlessly. She said: “Artists are obliged to give up opportunities in order to continue their painting.”"
