"I love her work! She is very aware
of placement. I see lots of imagery
of harmony in the lighter piece but
I especially love the darker piece because I find it very expressive and emotional. I see fragmentation and upset in this piece. I can see a little girl. Does this piece have anything to do with your childhood? I love the colors, texture and your ability to use assemblage to express
your emotions."

Critic and Art Historian
