"I have a deep and abiding faith in the creative power of human beings. The creative process gives meaning to life. We are essentially creators and in fulfilling this function find purpose and direction in our daily existence."

"For the artist, no matter how intense the creative drive might be, the strict discipline of his craft must always be maintained — that is the understanding of the laws of space, color and form. There must also be evident the total dedication of the artist to the task he has set for himself from which, despite its constant and relentless demands, he would never wish to be free."
