"Eva is my art hero!"

 Paul Wilborn, Executive Director of Palladium Theater, St. Petersburg, FL

"She's not just an artist - rather, everything Eva does is art, and on top of that she is wise, fun, low-drama, kind, creative and makes really beautiful music. She is a good friend and I give her an A+ human rating." Jessica Duvearney, former owner of Cellar Door Gallery in Albuquerque, NM.

"Eva Avenue is one of the most talented, prolific, visionary artists I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She is also a hell of a lot of fun to be around." Mike Smith of Albuquerque, essayist, historian, and author

"One of my favorite editor-in-chiefs to pass through these halls." Jim Fisher, Student Pub Board Supervisor at the Daily Lobo at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque

"One of the finest, most versatile and surprising artists I know." Danny Solis, Albuquerque's first slam poet laureate.
