Martha Reeve Fine Art Consulting on Art Gems April 2016
"I couldn't wait to email you today about the incredible success of your painting last night. Into The Forest, Being Alice sold far above value, with many bidders hoping to take it home. Congratulations and a HUGE thank you from the whole Art Gems community."

Globe and Mail, January 2012

On Diana Menzies and Nada Sesar-Raffay at First Canadian Place Gallery

"Menzies and Sesar-Raffay shove paint around like stevedores pushing freight on a wet dock. There's plenty to savour in these paintings."

Art Gems 2012
A fund raising art auction that supports Creative Works Studio, Art Gems 2012 was an exciting event, raising over $95,000 for a worthwhile cause.

Recent Aquisition by the Greater Toronto Airports Authority
"I'm very pleased to have added two of your paintings to the Greater Toronto Airports Authority's corporate collection. They are now hanging in the Terminal 3 Distinguished Visitors Lounge, which is used for executive meetings as well as to welcome heads of state, high ranking politicians and religious leaders. It can also be used to accommodate families if there is a crisis. I'm so glad that the room is enlivened by work from a Toronto artist."
