This is me when I was 16:
I realize now that in college my sculptures were reminiscent of Delia's sculptures. I definitely didn't do it on purpose, I guess the childhood influence just kind of rubbed off on me. I remember bringing my artwork to my parents house at the end of the year and they said, "well I guess we could put them in the attic". I was SO offended.
And now I am at that age where I feel the need to express myself through home decor, because somehow putting my creative energy into my work isn't enough; I want to be completely surrounded and immersed in my strangeness. Delia has a very eloquent way of saying this so I will let her do the talking-
