Reviews

“...perhaps the most perfect painter with her painstaking old master glazing techniques which gives her oils a glowing luminosity...every inch of the canvases have a deliciously delicate tactility...” Sean Simon, NY ARTSPEAK

“...a painter of consummate refinement...” Martin Parsons, NY ARTSPEAK

“The landscape paintings all explore a sense of distance between her often explosive brush strokes and imagined horizons.”  ...Vincent Colvin, co-director of Grizzly Grizzly Art Space, 2010

“Isabelle’s Realm, winner of the Sigsbee Gilham Award is an oil painting that is very ambitious in terms of scale and vision.It demonstrates the ability of the artist’s sensitivity and delicate control of the formal elements...”  Daniel B. Shay, National Gallery of Art, 2003
