It’s quite an eclectic selection. From the wonderful geometric designs of Clarice Cliff and Sonia Delaunay to the decidedly whimsical Cicely Mary Barker to the whimsical (in a hard-edged traumatized way, maybe fantastical is a better word), Frida Kahlo.

I am delighted to have had my collection of urban minimal paintings featured in the highly respected Canadian Fowl Feathered Review!
