"Using Middle America as her muse, Kowch draws the history of a particular place -- invariably rural -- to the surface as it collides with a new reality in layers of metaphor and moodiness. The faces of her women may remind you of characters in a Tim Burton film."

More PR? Wow, I didn't even have to shuck & hustle for you on this one too! I'm glad to see you getting more publicity! It's not like you don't deserve it either; you've been working mighty hard all semester long.

Nicely done!

Besides it might even save me from you breaking my hand so I can be your rep.

This is really great for you Andrea. I loved the way he described your paintings. The mood is clear, but he brought up more thoughts I didn't recognize myself. Truly successful and touching pieces. Your work definitely leaves an impression on all of us!

You are welcome Andrea. It was a no brainer for me to select you. You bring something to the table that belongs in niche of itself. It is just a matter of time before your own artwork appears on CD covers and Books!
