Her Sweet Excess: Interview with American Painter Adrienne Stein

"My work is personal, containing symbols and codes for things that are taking place in my life or what I yearn for. The stakes are high, so when others disapprove of your work, they essentially disapprove of you. It is a great risk. The life of an artist is full of self-doubt and isolation. Yet this is a part of everyone’s experience."

“I Have Dreams Where I Can Breathe Under Water” ~ Interview with Figurative Painter, Teresa Elliott

"There's something irreverent about getting muddy. Plus, its related to play and recreation. My mother was OCD about keeping the floors clean, her hair in place. This is all counter to my mud series, which by the way is not appreciated by my parents. They have a visceral reaction to my mud paintings. That's one advantage to being a mature artist, though, there's no time to waste and I do what I want, but they remain scandalized."
