“With just one glance at her paintings, you get a warm feeling inside. They are somehow comforting… and then you take a longer look and truly appreciate the technique and skills of this artists’ eye and ability to capture and recreate, whether it be a still life or floral work. She has mastered lighting effects to focus your eye just where she wants you to be and then takes you on a journey in and around the textures and folds of fabrics, the intricate design of a vase, paintings to look and linger…”Renee Kennedy
