         What a treat to meet you at the Tucson Museum of Art show and to finally 
         see your work in person---so extraordinary!!! As a fellow animal lover, I was
         completely fascinated by how you've bonded with the wildlife in your backyard
         and felt like a kindred spirit in that regard. Thank you for spending so much
         time chatting with me and my husband and showing us your incredible album. I
         honestly have never seen work like yours before and am in awe of your skill,
         creativity, detail, symbolism, images, use of color and movement, etc, etc.!!! I
         happen to love Kuan Yin and Frida Kahlo and loved seeing your different
         interpretations of them. I told my husband that your work has the feeling of
         beautiful stained glass to me!

          The most beautiful work--breathtaking! The women just drew me  in
          and then I began to see the layers of meaning. Thank you.

          Great work...wish I had money to burn. I'd celebrate and buy at least 
          one or more...!

  • Wow, beautiful work indeed.  Would love to see them in person.
    I have a lot of orb photos as well, some from performances with the Goddess masks I used to circulate.  I am not surprised at all that spiritual beings come to visit this lovely, spiritual work!

    Great article about a great artist.  However, this only concentrates on her recent work. That which she did based on Ted DeGrazia's work is equally enjoyable.

  • My cousin Ginny has always been so artistically talented. I have admired her work all my life. I still have the hand knitted teddy bear she made me when we were children. Her mosaics are breath taking and I've seen most of them in person when I visit her beautiful home and gardens which are also breathtaking! I know this is just the beginning of many great things for my Quan Yin Ginn, beautiful from the inside out "angel" cousin. Namaste',Bon

  • This is one multi-talented lady.  I can remember walking into her house and seeing the bust of DeGrazia that she had done and was really blown away.  And now her mosaics are absolutely awesome.  You really need to check them out.

  • I have a small mosaic of Ginny's featuring dragonflies and glowing flowers against a dark blue sky. I never get tired of looking at it!

    I have travelled with Ginny and experienced how she looks at places and people and quietly absorbs what is special about them.  To interpret this knowledge into works of art of such an unusual nature is truly astounding.  It is has to be seen.

    I really enjoyed seeing the unfinished/work in progress. It is always interesting to see an artist's approach/methods. The finished product is breathtaking. Wonderful use of color contrasts for depth.

    Fabulous. I only hope it will not be long before Ginny has an exhibition of her unique Mozaics in the UK where  the art world badly needs rejuvenating! Meanwhile congratulationsto Ginny and thanks to Tucson Arts.

    It's wonderful to see that Ginny is getting the attention she so deserves.  Not only is she an extraordinary talent, she is a wonderful person.  It seems that her inner beauty finds its way into her work.

    Even when viewed on screen the colour and construction is breathtaking. I would love to see these beautiful mosaics in person. Ginny Rothwell is a very talented and versatile artist and it's fascinating to see the inspiration from the many countries she's visited shine through.

    I have always considered myself pretty lucky to be surrounded by two expressive artists.  Ginny is my long time neighbor and the other artist, my late husband Elden "Mat" Mathews.
    Ginny is committed to her art, she pushes limits, and is very inventive.  She fires her own tiles and has the patience to precisely cut the tiles to create her outstanding mosaics.
    We are both "backyard birders."  Many enjoyable hours are spent observing the birds that fly in and the "critters" that make it home.  Ginny uses these times as periods of inspiration.

    I met Ginny years ago in Tashkent and had a wonderful time walking around the city and through the open markets with her.  She has such energy and curiosity, and a  human warmth that reaches out to everyone she meets.  I find her mosaics fascinating and have been looking at the Jewel in the Lotus just now.  It's the kind of picture you want to keep looking at.  You keep finding new things that draw your eye, and that's just in a photograph of the mosaic.  I hope that I can see it 'in the stone' sometime soon.  You're amazing, Ginny!

    I have known Ginny for many years and her talent is just unbelievable.  These mosaics show how talented she is.  I have a small bronze of Ginny's and it is one of my most precious pieces of art.  I am looking forward to seeing Ginny's most recent endevours when I visit Tucson.

    I have known Ginny since our college days at the University of Utah. I am in awe with her mosiacs. I know what ever project she does, she puts all her heart and soul into it. She is an extremely talented lady and is well over due for being reconized for all her  multiple talents. I wish you all the best and can't wait to see some of your latest project in person.

    An incredibly talented artist  whose work deserves to be shared with the world.   Each piece of art is unique and has a story to tell.  Ginny is a very special person and I want her work to get the recognition it deserves.

    My husband and I have a mosaic of Ginny's which we commisioned several years ago.  It is of tropical birds and flowers.  We absolutely love it; but it pales beside her current work which is beyond spectacular.  She is a fabulous artist.

  • My daughter and I had the good fortune of  stumbling upon one of Tucson's treasures as we began selling Girl Scout Cookies in our neighborhood.   We have seen Ginny's mosaics,  sculptures, photos and her animal inspirations over the past four years and count ourselves lucky to have been invited in by our mosaic lady to see her work.  We have been awed by the incredible detail she puts into her work.  We are also impressed at how she is able to combine glazes onto a single tile to create faces with exquisite beauty, shading, and detail.  My favorite (and my son's) is the mountain lion mosaic, but my daughter loves the Jewel in the Lotus.  Although the photos of her work are incredible, they pale in comparison to seeing her art in person.  Each year we look forward to seeing what is new.  Thank you, Ginny, for sharing with us.  You are incredible both as an artist and a person.
