Lance Esplund, art critic for Modern Painters, Art in America wrote:

“Lombard’s collisions of color convey the activity and immediacy of the artist’s eye as it darts from motif to palette to canvas in an attempt to rein in everything before the light changes. Our senses are heightened…”

“Very hot colour range and a richly artistic touch …”  -Tony Rothon, Studio Art International
