"An accomplished painter, she brings to her poetry the same landscape of contrasts, in her vivid descriptions of light and dark, struggle and release, the cleansing properties of fire. She is a courageous poet with a rich palette and the ability to create some startling and memorable images."
Maura Dooley & Jamie McKendrick, Poetry Book Society Bulletin
"Her book is about aloneness, about cathartic confrontation and rebirthÖ The position of the confessional voice in this poetry is quite deceptive ñ the 'I' can be both public and personal. Such poems outflank the obvious. This is poetry come out of siege."
John Kinsella, Observer
