"John McCrady was my first art teacher. Attending his Art School in the French Quarter, I was introduced to McCrady's modified version of the traditional underpainting of Rembrandt. It was through McCrady's influence that I began my lifelong fascination with New Orleans architectural history and European painting. McCrady recognized an expressionist spirit emerging in my work early on which has only gotten stronger since." Phyllis Parun
"Phyllis Parun is an enviably talented artist who makes us aware of the sources of inspiration and the traditions in modern art that she is skillfully keeping alive."
Roger Green, Art Critic, Times Picayune
"Achieving the ultimate purity of tonal color and grace of form, Phyllis' work is ever fresh and her colectors recognize her talent for its figuration and its intimacy."
