“Only an artist with Lockerby’s defiant temperament could have painted this powerful landscape with its controlled vitality and dramatic force. She communicated movement and created a living organism consistent with her own feelings of revolt against conventional taboos.”
Mr. Ash Prakash, Independent Spirit, Early Canadian Women Artists
