The work of dAKOTA...drives me into drooling ecstasy...combining paintings with simple emotion;du moment partagé... (Livre d'or exposition Petit Bois )
... glorious colour pics...(Sud-Ouest
on "Exposition Au Petit Bois")
Dream of a dream...hauntingly lovely landscape and meeting (Ouest-France on "Views
from a French Painter")
dAKOTA's superb works have captured the staggering variety of the landscape (Five to Seven on "Views from the Hills")
"he is the perfect master of technique,catches a ray of sunshine,a flower,a reflection on the water or a morning mist with the sure hand of a great painter, Fuck what a painter, an ARTIST!" (Le Matin)
"Johnny and I cannot begin to thank you enough.We LOVE all the paintings!They are better than we could ever imagine.Your artistic eye shines through in all the of the pictures." Johnny and Heather Beck
"A rencontre can be a particularly hard event to capture, it's a very intimate moment between two people yet becomes very public. Dakota was able to capture both the private, intimate moments in her unique way and also celebrate the gathering of so many friends and loved ones. Our picture was and will continue to be a wonderful visual record of such a special day, thank you."
Nina and Henry Petersen.
