“Awakened by an artist in today’s time, Bren Sibilsky's art spreads the realm of "Artistically Magnanimous". I entered Bren's barn and witnessed a large-scale sculpture of a full figured black woman. I stood in suspense, filled with awe! Moments later, I was jet propelled into another dimension by witnessing her paintings lying amongst the walls of her house. It was clear to me through my world travels that this was one of the Greatest Artist of our times.” Troi D. Gray, collector, entrepreneur, and artist, Chicago, IL
