"Who takes my classes? We’ve had everyone from undergrads to people taking some time off to retirees. Since we’re in Washington, we get a lot of people with established careers in the government or in business, looking to explore an artistic talent later in life."
"I want my pieces to be just as visually interesting and intriguing by themselves, in a sculptural sense, as when they are being worn."
