"Eliza Burke Greene is a wonderful colorist. The painting Sleep Walker is vibrant and has inner energy that pushes to the surface of the canvas and has extended her reach far beyond the four corners of that canvas. The work has figurative elements but if one does not note the title of the piece it also reads as a well constructed abstract work."
— Christina Strassfield, Director and Chief Curator, Guild Hall Museum, New York
