What People Say


  • “I LOVED LOVED LOVED all of the pieces in the show. I took photos of all your art and thought Halloween Monster Casino was great I loved the playing cards you made with mother of pearl- but all your pieces are wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!! While I appreciate the sailor’s valentine’s and the time consuming work the other’s made, your art is just so much better i(n my opinion) because it is original , one of a kind and has SOUL and humor.”   Katie Pfeiffer
  • “For most of us, a mention of shellfish may conjure up thoughts of garlicy mussels, steamed Littleneck clams or simply shucked oysters with a squeeze of lemon. Alla Baksanskaya thinks of showgirls, toucans and the personification of evil. It’s not because the Brooklyn based artist is prone to strange imaginings or under the influence of a mind-altering drug, but because she uses seashells to create her unique three-dimensional artwork…” Nadia Arumugam http://writeon2.blogspot.com/
