Phillip J. Mellen interviews painter Suzanne Kammin about her work and process.

Kammin speaks in depth about her process which includes freely experimenting with compositional possibilites via computer sofware. Using the software as a studio tool, she comments, "eliminates a certain amount of anxiety about destroying the painting and that frees me up to try a lot of different things... You have to try, as hard as it is, to let go of your anxiety about making a mistake. It's your anxiety that hampers the feeling of confidence you need... you have to try to get yourself in the mindset of not caring what happens... The computer allows me a way around that problem."
