CRITIQUES AND REVIEWS
  • 2015 When I am stressed out at work, a go and stand in front of your work.  I find a new area in your work to gaze at and follows its path of connections.  At first it feels like chaos, but there's an order and it calms me.  I am relieved of my stress.  
  • 2011 “Stunning photography and amazing story.”  “One of the most beautiful books about the London Underground I have ever seen (& trust me, I’ve seen a lot).  The photography is so stunning that  is  really becomes the book’s hero.” Annie Mole london-undergrounblogspot.com
  • 2011 If I had a coffee table this book would never leave it as I keep going back to see the nostalgic images”  Laura Porter, Go London

  • 2008 California State Fair Fine Art Competition juror’s statement, Yoshio Taylor:  “I kept gravitating towards Adopt A Starving Artist Vending Machine.  It is a humorous, intriguing, and fascinating piece, and the more I paid attention to the details of the work, the more I was intrigued by it.  I consider it a very successful work of art.”
  • 2005:  Scott Shields, Chief Curator at the Sacramento Crocker Fine Art Museum, said of my work during a lecture at Shasta College, “I noticed at least one student who has found their voice.  I don’t know if this student is a genius or completely crazy.”
  • 2004: THE LANCE, Redding, California: Interview
  • 2003: Redding Record Searchlight, Redding, California: Interview
  • 2003: California State Fair Brochure, Sacramento:  Juror Kelvin Curry, Judge and Printmaker at San Jose State, California: “Reveal III utilizes incredible tones and organic shapes.  Printmaking at its best, and the framing is excellent.”
  • 2002: Sacramento Bee, California, Victoria Dalkey, Bee Art Corespondent: Also compelling and inventive is an arrangement of rectangles and squares in skin tones by Jane Magarigal of Lakehead in Shasta County.  Titled “Self Portrait: Skin Deep,” its parts are labeled with words denoting physical and intellectual properties, the passage of time and the realm of the spiritual.  It’s a fascinating self-portrait that turns the skin inside out to examine deeper issues.”
