"Don't call your work 'traditional,' it's not! It's crafted and it's accomplished. You make your work accessible to people. You take objects that are traditionally represented but combine them in new ways by showing the complexity of nature reflected in the complexity of man-made objects."
— In a discussion between Vikki and Dr. Diane Karp, Director of the Santa Fe Art Institute on 6 September, 2003 at the opening of the "Art In The Metroplex" exhibition at Texas Christian University.
