(Wilson's) images offer a mysterious, almost haunting presence. "They are poignant and powerful, yet ambiguous. Meaning can be drawn, but never definitively pinned down, nor can her work be categorized under a particular style, convention or ism."

Cary S. Levine, quoted by Danielle Winterton in "Living the Dream" (see below).
