"Your artwork is, in my opinion, some of the most brilliant I've seen in the mezzotint medium, as it is not only technically proficient, but the images themselves are thoughtful, and deeply profound visual statements.. they are truly magnificent"
Deborah Maris Lader - Founder/Director of the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative, Chicago USA
“I must be transformed in some way in order for a work of art to claim my heart, mind and vote. I am proud to have awarded Cleo Wilkinson the Cash Award because all of her entries moved me. They were solid, innovative, superbly executed and to create mezzotint prints is a challenge not many artists are willing to face today”
