"ONE of Sammy Dent's paintings is captioned:

"It's never too late" / media "Everything!'

"Everything" is a good description of Sammy's work; she uses everything and she gives everything and more. In 1995 I had the good fortune to meet/teach Sammy. It is always a delight when a student shines out with a natural obsessive feel for the stuff of paint.

---Edward Kelly, 2012.

" has called Ms. Dent's work "energetic, bold and big." She uses contrasting mediums - vibrantly colored dry pigment, fast drying acrylic paints and high gloss varnish - which give her images visual depth and texture."

"When I imagine and artist's studio, I imagine something not too dissimilar to Sammy Dent's. Tubs and tubes of acrylic, gloss varnish and chubby oil bars strewn across every surface, vibrant plant splatters that cover the walls to the floor in rainbow-hued polka dots: the room itself is like a giant painting pallette."
