June 15, 2011: From a review of the Glasgow School of Art MFA degree show in The Scotsman:

"[Elizabeth McDonald's] Aint no sunshine when the freezer's low, showing a woman in a dirty kitchen, holding a squirrel and smiling bravely, has an edgy sadness... McDonald, who won the Young Artist Award in the BP Portrait Prize, is a fine painter, developing all the time, and one to watch. Even in a risk-averse market, a combination of talent and perseverance is likely to win through in the end."

-Susan Mansfield
