“Luzajic, like Wonder Woman, is her own institution.”
Paul Robinson, Blog Critics
"It was love at first sight. From color to texture, from subtle imagery to bold icons, Lorette’s work gets into your soul."
"In a time where “mixed-media” can mean just about anything, it’s always nice to see an artist really take that concept and push it to the next level."
"I love (Flying Pony) and it's just down the street, so I can have coffee with your artwork day after day just like I always wanted... I think you should be massively collected and make tons of money...Honestly, MOCCA should do a one woman show."
Fletcher Chamberlain, collector
"Each canvas possesses a distinct character of its own; found words and images vibrate alongside each other producing an apt distillation of modernity."

"It's just so interesting- each piece keeps you looking and looking forever..if it wasn't for the next piece you would never stop looking at it...fantastic work!"
Carolyn R. Parsons Chaffey, journalist and writer
"Each of Luzajic’s pictures are a valediction to everything banal, turgid and homogenous in our culture. Instead they are a party, a riot, a celebration of all that we hold dear. Most of all it is a homage to human creativity."
Moray Mair, Mutant Space
"Queen of the fantastic."
Carrie Shibinsky, Art Bomb
"I find your work beautiful, interesting. I like your colours. Your themes are rich and varied. Your collages are very well balanced. I see that your work has a particular stamp. I like this. You have a lot of talent!"
Juan Rubiano, photographer
"Lorette's writings and her visual imagery bespeak refreshing authenticity and a profuse exuberance for her subject or message. She is straightforward, and sometimes vulnerable. In a world of hardened cynicism she speaks in earnest, and with skill, from the heart. Her insights are fresh, often unexpected, and always engaging. Don't miss her work!"
Constance Pierce, Independent Artist, and Retired Associate Professor of Painting and Drawing (NY)
“Think Courtney Love meets Margaret Atwood.”
Donnarama, drag queen and performance artist
“This girl was born to write and she writes as well as I do.”

“The Astronaut’s Wife establishes Lorette C. Luzajic as a rising, multi-talented poet on the Canadian scene. Her insights into the heights and depths of our common human struggle to live out our own often-buried divinity hold the ring of authenticity and truth. Weep, laugh, enjoy!”
Tom Harpur, bestselling author of Would You Believe? How to Find God Without Losing Your Mind; the Pagan Christ, and Born Again: My Journey From Fundamentalism to Freedom
“Not one friend has failed to noticed our Luzajic since we hung it a few months ago. Her style is as arresting as it is idiosyncratic. I absolutely love our piece.”
Malcolm Jolley, editor, Good Food Revolution
“All around creative genius...Lorette, you are a superstar.”
Ariel Gore, author of How to Become a Famous Writer Before You’re Dead, Atlas of the Human Heart, The Hip Mama Survival Guide, and Bluebird: Women and the New Psychology of Happiness
“Imaginative, witty...surprising, profound, very human, touching, sassy.”
Thomas Moore, bestselling author of Care of the Soul, Soul Mates, The Soul of Sex, and the Re-enchantment of Everyday Life
“The Astronaut’s Wife treads holy ground, sometimes with holy rawness and sometimes with unholy eloquence. The last two stanzas open a whole other realm.”
Will Braun, former editor of Geez Magazine
“I consider Lorette to be one of the greatest artists in the world. I have collected her creative work and commissioned several masterpieces. Her creativity amazes me along with her astounding sense of colour and design!”
Don Smith, CEO, Startegic Enterprises
"The glorious subtext, the spaces between her words, reveal themselves as multi-layered worlds, blooming in and out of focus. Constellations appear, and, punctuated by light, disappear. Markings regroup, cells divide a supernova bossa nova swansong. The wound is concealed but the scar is revealed. The new void is heavy with possibility. And the joyous dance begins again, with new dresses and jewels to wear…Luzajic’s work makes me think of Leonard Cohen: ‘Children show scars like medals, lovers use them as secrets to reveal. A scar is what happens when the word is made flesh.’"
Caroline Bacher Goldsmith, artist and jewelry designer
“Lorette’s brilliantly amusing and insightful piece brings colour and joy to my office.”
Apple Newton-Smith, LL.B. Criminal Trials and Appeals
“A tremendous imagination. I can’t imagine decorating without Luzajic’s art.”
John Bennett, property manager for luxury resorts in Mexico
