    “They are few and far between those creators who bring us to our own infantile world, transporting us to spaces which we supposed were erased from memory and long cast into oblivion. DEMI renews this childhood fascination in a spellbinding whirl of brushstrokes and pigments.”

    -Ramón Cernuda

    “DEMI continues in a rich lineage of popular painters — echoing the omnipresent magic of Chagall, the stylized simplicity of Rousseau, the spectral tableaus of Remedios Varo and Leonora Carrington, and the visceral
    modernism of Frida Kahlo.”


    -Nico Hough

    “In rescuing the innocence of the spirit DEMI appeals to the naïf resource of the simple painting, devoid of affectation, lacking ostentation, and clearly stripped of artifice. Her colors reach our gaze unpolluted, in the purity made requisite by her creative intention.”
