“I still love that I work at home – yet it’s a separate space. I keep the blinds closed to the view as too much light on my screens, but when I’m painting I open them up for more light. I’d like it to be less cluttered and more zen. I keep trying.”

“It’s strange to think of drawing as a solidifying element in one’s life, especially of flimsy pencil drawings, but it felt great to take a nebulous, seemingly mercurial idea in my head and “cement” it onto an object to exist in the world.

Mark Mulroney.

“Each object or scrap can be a memento, a souvenir or part of a future work. Locations and objects change since I work at home and in my studio. At home, it can be the kitchen table, the basement, the front porch or the back yard. The project determines the location.”
