“Strong angles, powerful lines, and the intersection of light and shadow…. Nelson balances abandonment with restraint.”      – Jennifer Smith, Managing Editor, Acrylic Artist Magazine, Fall 2016 Issue


“I find [Nelson’s] brushwork and mark-making to be utterly compelling. The way she mixes hard and soft edges is so rich and expressive, as is the way she merges specific and descriptive marks with pure, raw physicality of paint.”        – Liz Erlewine, CTAC Galleries Director
