In recent reviews:
"Sawyer paints with dashing spontaneity and easy informality." Lawrence Campbell, Art in America, 1990.
"Sawyer’s affection for the moment is clear in the way she avoids following any obvious historical tradition. The world is taking place all at once in her work.... the childlike perspective acts as a metaphor for delight." Jonathan Goodman, Art in Amercica, 1999.
"The paintings have a buoyant . . . immediacy." Ken Johnson, New York Times, 1998.
