It’s very rare for art critics to have the opportunity to stretch out and write at length about a single artist’s work.

She was humorous, joyful, very smart, and brimming with ideas, and it was easy to recognise that she was living, not just making, her work —thinking and feeling through colour and paint. We quickly became friends and have remained so.
