Her brief meta-definitions sing, dance, and sometimes cry."-- George Leonard, author of "The Silent Pulse" "A bright new talent whose work is at once reminiscent of James Thurber's drawings, Italo Calvino's "Invisible Cities, " Edmund Spenser's "The Faerie Queene, " and Zen koans." -- Art Kliener, San Francisco Bay Guardian"The Qualities are wise and whimsical and express truth in a very personal way."-- Jean Bolen, author of "Goddesses in Every Woman"
