Reviews of The Underpainter

Lorna Jackson, Quill & Quire, August 1997.
“She is, of course, capable of stylish, evocative imagery. But she is also prone to overwriting and melodrama.”
Ann Skea, Eclectica Magazine, 1999.
“Her clear vision is reflected in language which is plain and quite ordinary, yet her art is subtle, delicate, multi-faceted and very moving.”
JK, The Keepin' It Real Book Club, 21 September 2008
“Urquhart's voice is quiet, yet undeniably powerful.”
