“A musician’s musician...Her creative odyssey provides a fascinating illustration of the high road to mastery that transcends the limitation so genre...Not only does she sing but she write lyrics...Her ability to
stretch the air vocally is about evenly matched with an astonishingly easy way with the painted word.”
