"This mid-career Arizona-based artist’s creations express a concern for the planet and its dwindling resources. In “Release”, 2013, a curtain of orderly aqua raindrops was painted over a purple-black backdrop. The piece brought to mind both tears and nourishing liquids and like the best of Nelson’s works, was simultaneously smile inducing and wistful."  Doug McClemont, ART+AUCTION, May, 2015.
