  • TOASTRANDER

    These are really nice.

    P.S. I like the new lay out for each artist on the home page, Jeff! nice and neat.

  • I really, really like and appreciate these pieces! And she used very interesting media… I am becoming more interested in abstract art (I am a Renaissance, realism & naturalism type girl!). How the different parts or sections or objects in an abstract work combine into an attractive aesthetic! I bookmarked her site!

  • Really beautiful pieces!
