Exhibition Comments
19th International, American Society of Botanical Artists, 

I can’t let the year end without telling you how very impressed I was by your Water Lettuce at the NY Hort-ASBA Exhibition (2016). At the opening, I was standing halfway back in the room, and it looked so absolutely three dimensional I couldn’t believe it was a two dimensional work.  It was fascinating to hear you talk about how you had slowly built up that effect. I congratulate you on your achievement.

The show jurors, Pat Jonas and Jessica Tcherepnine did a walkthrough and commented on some of the pieces they found interesting. They only mentioned a few and yours was one of them because the technique was unique and because of how much you said in a small work.

I want to congratulate you on ASBA’s recognition of your stunning garlic painting. It really is an image that sticks in the mind and is such a great example of exploring ‘beyond the representational’.

As a botanist I can only say that you have an exquisite eye and as an artist, I will say that you are simply amazing. Such great skill …
