"I don't want my work to confuse people -- I want them to linger in it."
"I love being an artist and am truly grateful to so many people who have appreciated and collected my work, which has been exhibited in galleries and museums and purchased by private and corporate collectors across the US and abroad." -- Carol Rowan
