According to Roach,

"With each project, a sense of adventure is felt along with an excitement of the unknown that pulls me in time after time. It's a process that is constantly renewing itself, and throughout this renewal, I feel more inspiration over time. Hopefully as an artist matures throughout life, his/her work reflects this. It's like breathing, all you can do is go with it."
