"I want to be able to forge my own path," Bobbie Burgers explains, "create my own genre, and not worry about where I sit in relation to other artists. I create art that interests me, and that is the only type of art that I will ever be able to create. I will never be able to follow a trend of a group; I am far too isolated from larger art trends. I think that we all just do what we do well, and respect each other for it."
