“She could speak vehemently about an injustice and render a translation from a German poem that she wanted to share, into a soulful, humane English. She was an image maker, very poetic, and, at times dark. In her art exhibitions, there could be pieces that made biting statements, lyrical landscapes, beautiful still-lifes, strongly individual figurative paintings, images of sophisticated humour and satire, and warm, sensitive portraits for which she was highly attuned.
Sigrid had the art spirit and kindled it in others - this is what a mentor in any field does for a young person who is untapped and feeling full of potential and longing. Her artistic range inspired; she excelled in many media: batik, cast jewelry, sculpture, drawing, pastels, as well as printmaking and painting.
Sigrid and l were alike in many ways, harmonious. l appreciated that she often strived to stress the soulful aspect and could animate the world of objects and nature.” – Kim Harrison
