“While these dancers may be more static than her swimmers, the spaces around and between them are evoked with such succulent vigor as to suggest that this virtuoso painter has gone beyond apprehending the flow of water to make magically palpable in pigment the swarming energies that activate the very air we
breathe.”

Ed McCormick, Gallery and Studio Arts Journal
