“I Pray for Rain and The Haven are two of the most powerful pieces to be included in the show. They are haunting, violent pieces that very effectively convey a sense of despairing loss and destruction. The viewer will find himself unable to look away from these highly charged and emotional pieces.”– Roxanne Barry,
from “Artist’s Competition shouldn’t be missed”,
