The New York Artist-Critic Joe Fyfe: “Hettmansperger declares her loyalty to the artist as poet, the one who internalizes and legislates, that begins to interpret what must be interpreted through feeling and depiction.”

UI Museum of Art Curator Kathleen Edwards:  “These worlds are both vast and mysterious. Hettmansperger’s paintings are populated by lone multi-dimensional structures that mostly float in the middle of the composition in undefined spaces. I think of her spaces as “scapes”—simultaneously landscape, bodyscape, and mindscape.”
