Cynthia comments:
“I was so fortunate to have met Isabelle (Ultra Violet) last year and to have exhibited her series “Self Portraits” in London, Washington D.C. and Toronto. Her special wish was for her work to be shown and viewed in London and we were also able to screen the film in which she featured – “Before they were Famous” at Christie’s in London. Truly, Ultra was one of the most unique of her ’60’s Generation”.
