What a pleasurable interlude, looking at all your wonderful work posted here. I have always been a huge admirer of your work, and hope one day to meet you in person, and perhaps even have one of your paintings on my wall. I think you have an extraordinary eye - we here in the USVI are blessed to have you chronicling vignettes of island life in such beautiful detail.
Nancy Anderson - 20 Mar 2010
You are a wonderful artist! Your detail is amazing!
Danielle Nelson - 1 Dec 2009
These paintings are so beautiful! I can almost hear the people talking. They look so warm and alive; your paintings really engage me and make me feel as if I am there with them. Spectacular!
Lisa Haverty - 18 Sep 2009
Your work never ceases to amaze me! As an amateur photographer (budding), I'm stunned by the realistic details of your work. It's my dream to own one of your originals... Brilliant!
Gail Ferreira - 2 Aug 2009
Dear Shasni. your pictures move me. I would love to see them in real life. Living in the north of England that is unlikely to happen. If I win the lottery I will open a gallery. Bless you
Cath Carmichael - 9 Jul 2009
Shansi, simply sublime. Never have I seen paintings of West Indian culture done with such love, compassion and expressiveness. I can hear the subjects speak when you portray a scene. These are forever paintings.
Barbara Parry - 13 Jun 2009
Very beautiful art pieces. I love the quality of your portrait paintings. It must have taken you quite some time to finish a piece, but the quality is abosulte top class. Keep it up

Hello, I was given your site link by a very close friend's sister, Carmen Nibbs. Her sister's name is Terry Sterling, both are from St. Thomas. I was born in VA, however have traveled to many countries. That brings me to a place where I can express how I feel about your gallery...... incredible. I feel the rhythm of your work my sister. I think you capture the expression and emotion of all the subjects of your work. Whether landscape, portraits, etc., you feel the moment and emotion and place it gently on your canvas. Continue to tell life's stories through your work; it's our gift to this world. With so much negative news, it's refreshing to feel encouragement from your wonderful works of "ART"! Please check out my site:

Shansi, Hi! I know it has been awhile since we last talked (two years!), I ran across your link in an email so here I am. Once again I say, Your work is fantastic! We all need to hear this from our fellows from time to time. I sure wish I was on island! We have ben blasted by winter nastiness! Keep painting lady!
Salina Ramsay - 2 Feb 2009
Dear Shansi, your art is a feast for the eyes and a medicine for our souls which are sometimes polluted by an unsensible society. I can watch for hours your paintings like you would do in front of the ocean: feeling in peace with yourself and the whole universe...

Shansi, press on with the extraordinary talent that God has bestowed upon you. I was turned on to your work when you were the featured artist in Art Fusion. Your attention to detail in all you works is what truly captivates me. I can't believe how well you capture everything about your subjects, right down to the lines in the palms of their hands. Good luck and continued success in the future.

Debi Davis - 9 Aug 2007
Dear Shansi, I choose my words carefully in hopes of matching the beauty, creativity, and the simple complexities of humanness that is brought to life in your art. There is an invisible doorway that is painted within your creations that allows the viewer to step into the scene being depicted. I am awestruck by your work. Thank you.
Luanne Melchior - 31 Jul 2007
A displaced (misplaced) St. Thomian, currently in America, I LOVE seeing your work. And what wonderful work it is; how homesick it allows me to be. Thank you, Shansi. Continued good fortune.

Blown away is what I'd say. Like everyone else said,"Exceptional". The pains taking details, the vibrant colors, the realistic shadows are all there. I'm saving to get something of yours.Blessings upon you, my dear.
Richie Philip - 23 May 2007
baby you have a great talent
loreetta - 21 May 2007
When someone look at your work, I can imagine them wondering, "Is it a painting or is it a photograph?" Awesome works of art. Your artistry reminds me of Norman Rocwell. It's so realistic like the paintings I used to admire as a little boy in the post office by the Grand Hotel. Keep up the good work.
Warren A. Claxton - 20 May 2007
My daughter, Elynne sent me your website. WOW!!! I am just in awe. The vibrant colors and fine detail of your work is exceptional! Your "Coming Home" was the exact view I had captured in my mind when returning home in April. Continued success!!!
Donna Cain-Lockhart - 20 May 2007
WOW!! You are so talented, and your art work is very inspirational! You may not have known that I myself am an artist, but I have not been doing much in a long time. All the best and future success, your friend Elynne.

Lou Harold - 28 Apr 2007
Hi Shansi! I am your new step-sister in law, I think? Mama J has talked so much about your paintings, but I just didn't get it until visiting your website. Wow. I feel like I just got to stand in the kitchen with some women, witnessing an intense moment. Admittedly, I would be hard-pressed to be invited into such a kitchen in real life. I really appreciate that you put me there. I'm a fan!!! Love, Lou
