I find it is interesting that Yau compared my work with Florence Miller Pierce in the first sentence. Although I have never met Florence and did not list her as a direct influence, I am aware of her work. I read Florence Pierce: In Touch with Light by Lucy Lippard while finishing up my MFA at the University of New Mexico. Perhaps her influences were in my work without me knowing it.
