“When truly engaged in art-making, time stands still. Lost in creativity and exploration, the artistic vision evolves … moving forward or backward … and perhaps it begins anew with a spark of innovation. Motivated to be present in this state of discovery, I savor the journey traveled in creation of art.” — Shetterly

“When it is working, you completely go into another place, you’re tapping into things that are totally universal, completely beyond your ego and your own self. That’s what it’s all about.” —Keith Haring
