Marianne de Jager

"Thank you for this series and the way you presented it - cool, calm, asking interesting questions and allowing the artists you interviewed to respond in their own way.  I especially enjoyed the sessions with Charlie O'Shields, Karen Abend and Misty Olsen.  I am also fascinated by the gentle Melanie Rivers and her culture.  What a wonderful group of people you got together!  I thought the last session where your husband interviewed you was a lovely touch.
So thank you for organising this and for sharing so generously your experience and what you love."

Elizabeth Isaacs Irby
