"Mary Pettis is a consumate artist of light and movement. Her work is superb and her observation of light, landscape, objects and people is among the very best today. She imbues her work with a poetic tone that is her own and whether it be in bright sunlight or soft moonlight, her light is true, honest and unmistakable. I love her work and I have awarded her several well-deserved awards over the years."
